On Sunday evening Alyssa turned on the TV and began to watch a documentary on the Egyptian twins who were conjoined at the head. Drew watched it with her. Denise and I weren’t sure that they should watch it, but it is real life–so we let her see the entire segment.

At dinner Drew began to ask questions. “Are they OK, Daddy?” Yes.
“Why are they together like that?” That’s the way things happen sometimes, Drew.

And then the kicker.
“Why did God make them like that, Daddy?”

It’s all part of God’s plan, Drew. Sometimes we don’t know why, but God has a plan.

They start asking the tough questions younger than you think.
