Do you know what it is like for your child to not be able to speak to you? To not be able to tell you how his day was? What he wants to be when he grows up? What his favorite color is?
Do you know what it is like to have your child talk to you? To say that he doesn't want to miss the bus...That he wouldn't like to live in Texas because it is a desert and after 5 pm you can't go out because the snakes will bite you, they have plants with things on them that can hurt you ( but he forgot what they are called--cactus)....
Maybe I am lucky, because I know what both of those things are like...At eight years old, my child could not have a conversation with me. Just two short years later, he is so different. God has shown us mercy. Do you know what it is like to have God put His hands on your child's face and breathe life into his nostrils--for a second time?
Then the LORD God formed the man of dust from the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living creature. ...Genesis 2:7
