You are good

Koko is my more "spiritual" of the children. She is more apt to pray, to talk about God, to ask questions. It's sweet and warms a mama's banana-filled heart.

The other day at breakfast, she and I were sitting at the table. She had her head resting on her hands, elbows on the table, and she said she had a dream about God and Jesus. Naturally, I was very interested to hear about this. Keeping a calm demeanor, I asker her to tell me the dream. At first I thought she was maybe making it up, just retelling a story, but the whole time she told it, she had this funny, sheepish grin on her face. Like it was special, but she was a little shy to share it. She has told the story of her dream 4 times now, and each time it is exactly the same.

The dream:
I had a dream about God and Jesus. I want to be with them where they live. I killed a giant with 30,000 stones (yes, we've read this story recently) and they said I saved the world. Then an angel came and gave me a message. It said "Koko, you are very good. Signed, Good Girl."

I asked her later to describe God and she couldn't. But she did describe the angel:
It had super long wings, it had super long hair, it was a girl and had earrings. And gave me some (earrings).

Isn't that awesome, to have a dream where God tells you you are good? Isn't that what everyone longs to hear? 'and the Holy Spirit descended on him in bodily form like a dove. And a voice came from heaven: "You are my Son, whom I love; with you I am well pleased."' Luke 3:22

What a lucky girl.
