For some reason, lately Kate has been obsessively talking about God, heaven, and the devil- actually to a point that is somewhat disturbing. Here are a few of her comments on the subject (there may be more to come, seeing as this has become a major interest for her recently):
"Mommy, if we'll all be in heaven together forever, then why don't we all just die now so we can be together forever already?"
"Why does God let the devil make us do bad things?"
"Can the devil be in our heart like God can?"
"Mommy, did you know the devil is magic? He can turn himself into a snake!"
"I know the devil is Lucifer, but what's his last name?"
"So, if God loves me when I do good things, does that mean the devil loves me when I do bad things?"
"I won't let the devil come in our house! I have to keep him away from Jack! I have to look out for Jack." (She then proceeded to go around the house locking every door)
(trying to remember Lord's Prayer) "in earth as in heaven. . . . . . . " "Mommy, do everybody wear panties in heaven?"
Kate: "Mommy, I don't feel like doing nothing bad. . .the devil must be sleeping."
Me: "I don't think the devil ever sleeps."
Kate: "Oh! Yeah, that's right, cause if the devil sleeped he could get his grumpies out and go back to heaven."
(Talking to her Uncle Kevin) "God says to share. God also says for people to not mess with me."
