Tiny Dart Frog

Poison Dart Frogs are some of the tiniest and beautiful creatures on the planet; they are also incrediably deadly. So, why call this blog "Tiny Dart Frog"? It goes back to the old adage - good things come in small packages. We are all created exactly as God has intended - unique, strong, and beautiful.

Theological Musings of an 11 Year Old

Jackson: "You know why I think God lets people do what they want?"

Me: "You mean, like 'free will'?"

Jackson: "Yeah.  Well, you know how God's eventually going to make earth part of heaven?  Well...God wants us to help make earth into heaven, so we have to learn how to do that.  And....the only way we learn is by doing.  At least that's what my soccer coach says."

Me: "So, we learn through our mistakes and successes?"

Jackson: "Yep.  But if it takes us too long, then God will just fix it or send some more angels or something.  Maybe a bunch of pastor angels."

Me: "I don't know if people turn into angels.  It says that God made humans 'just a little lower than angels'."

Jackson: "I guess, but seriously Mom, if God can make people out of dust, then I think God could make angels out of people."

Me (giggling):  "You're right, buddy.  Time for bed now..."

Jackson: "Okay.  Don't forget prayers...."
