  1. “When our first son was about four he went to play school one day and immediately went over to an easel and stood there holding a brush ready to start painting. The teacher came up behind him and said, “What are you going to paint?”
    “God,” he said.
    “And do you know what God looks like?”
    “I will when I finish the painting,” he said as he began to paint.”

    That is great! What a perfect response!
