Do you have questions? I know my kids do!! Most frequently they are questions like, "Where are my shoes?" "Did you sign my homework?" "What's for dinner?" "Can I eat something else?"

Ben's favorite question is "Do I hafta eat this?" I don't know how we ended up with such a picky kid. The other two went through some stages, but Ben has settled down in a PBJ-loving zone and is not inclined to move. Last night he was upset because I used the butter knife to spread his peanut butter and that made the sandwich inedible. Ken told him that peanut butter is made with butter. "That's why it's got 'butter' in the name."  Then Ben picked up the jar of peanut butter and started reading the ingredients. LOL! We both almost lost it at that point. He's too smart for his own good. For the record, Ken managed to point out that butter is made with oil and salt, and so is peanut butter. Ben finished the sandwich.

We've got some other questions too, though. One morning Frances asked why Henry had yelled at her about something that seemed pretty minor. The answer involved an explanation of the stress Henry has been under before reporting a school issue. In trying to deal with things himself, I'm pretty sure his poor brain was so fried by the time he got home that blinking in his general direction would have set him off.  That was the main answer, but the other answer was simply "grace." As in, Henry is dealing with something kinda tough right now. We're working on it and he's gonna be okay, but right now he needs grace.

Henry's good at asking questions. A few weeks ago, as we were driving home from somewhere, he asked me, "Mommy, was God born? How did He get to be? Was He always just there?" Well, dang! That's a heavy question for a nice drive around town!! I answered the best I could, and explained that with faith you will always get to a point where you can't just explain something. That's the whole point of faith. You just have to believe it in your heart.

Jeremy Camp's new album "The Answer" has been getting some major play time in my van lately. The title song may not give answers to questions about how peanut butter is made or why some kids are bullies, but it gives a great answer to many of life's deeper issues.

On second though, when I'm frazzled at the fourth dinner in a row that my some has refused, I need Jesus. And when my kids are getting picked on and stressed out, I remind them that they need Jesus (and so do those bullies). When we start to ponder the intricacies of creation or appreciate the beauty of the world around us, well, Jesus is a pretty good answer there too.

This is a great album. It's quality music that will remind you throughout the day that Jesus is the answer, that you are greatly loved, and that we are called to share this love with those who we come into contact with throughout the day.
