Childlike Faith and Expectation

DG:  I am listening really hard, mommy!

Me.  What are you listening to?

DG:  Today is the first day of the new year and I am listening really hard.  Aren't you Mommy?

Me.  What are we listening for?

DG?  Remember Daddy said that Jesus could come back anytime in 2011 and then he would never have to go to work.

Me.  (The fog is quickly clearing and understanding is dawning).  Oh so you are listening really hard for the trumpet that will sound when Jesus comes for us?

DG:  Yep!  Isn't it exciting, Mommy?  I can't wait for heaven!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh to have the faith like that of a child.  May I never forget the wonder of it all!
