"I Lived in Heaven a Long Time Ago...

...where I drove a car and swam in a pool". At least according to Chase.

I was imparting my pearls of wisdom upon my child, in the form of a story from my past. Chase asked a question that I have been hearing from him a lot lately.

"Was I there when that happened?"

I mentioned to him that this story took place way before he was ready to be born. He said,

"Oh, yeah! That's right. That's when I was in heaven driving my car and swimming in the pool."

"Really?" I asked. "Was that fun or what!?

"Yeah, it was really fun. I would drive my car around for a while. Then I would be ready to swim, so I would jump in the deep end."

"Really? And you weren't scared without an adult being there with you?"

"No, Jesus was there with us. We weren't scared at all".
