He uses his clothes until its “last breath”. I can not wait to use them as my cleaning clothes. Takes a long time for that shirt to retire. He has always been a wise spender. Good husbandry.
I told him, “I want to buy you some new shorts for the summer.”
He replied (as I predicted), “No I have enough. I do not want to own a lot of material things. I want to be minimalist.”
I was just struck by his words. I do not want to own a lot of material things. I know I married a special man. He is different. In a good way I guess. He is not too vain. His values just do not rely on material possessions.
Well, his birthday is coming up soon. I always have a hard time thinking of what to give this man who is never materialistic. Maybe a birthday card, a message of love, and just my love? : – )
“Why can’t we bring our things to heaven?”
So again, I have to explain to my 6 year old boy that material things belong to the material world where we live in. And in heaven, we do not need these things, for God provides everything.
“Why do people die? When do people die? ….I wish I can live forever”
So again, I have to explain to my 6 year old boy that he should not be thinking too much about these things right now. Instead, he should enjoy everyday. And if that “time” comes, we will all be in heaven. It is our true home. And everything will be bright and beautiful!
My son is starting to ask a lot of questions, never ending questions. He is so interested in so many things. And I do my best to explain it to his level. Sometimes, I just do not know what else to say!
Hope your day went well!!!!
Thanks for dropping by : – )
