Such concentration ...
I realized just how much this impressed Nathan last night at 2:00 in the morning. He had a nightmare and came into our bedroom crying silently. He told me all about how a dragon had come and burned up Isaac and we couldn't get into his room to save him. Nathan was thoroughly upset. I walked him to his room and had a little talk - that Isaac was fine, it was just a dream, etc., etc. He asked if we could say a prayer to make him feel better. I conceded, and he laid back down looking content. Suddenly, he shot back up -
"Mom! Know what? It's okay if Isaac dies! He'll just be re-surr-rected again!"
I was (and am) so touched with what Nathan taught me last night. He LITERALLY has no fear of death. So much so that recently, upon refusing to wear his seat belt and me giving him a little lecture on the dangers of car accidents, he says, "But Mom, I can die, it's okay - I'll be with Jesus!" I explained to him while that was true, he still had a lot of things to do in this life - school (which he looks forward to soooooooo much), a mission, marriage, etc. Luckily he seemed okay with this plan. ;o)
I am so grateful that my son has such a profound understanding of the plan of salvation already. I can only hope that it abides with him for always.
