{As I was tucking Taylor in and getting ready to pray for her}
Taylor: Mommy, I wanna go to heaven to see Jesus. (this isn't the first time she's asked this)
Me: You do?
Taylor: Yeah, but you have to die to go to heaven and I don't wanna die, I just wanna go see Jesus.
Me: I wanna see Jesus too.
Taylor: But you don't want to die?
Me: Not yet but someday we'll die and get to be with Jesus in heaven.
Taylor: But I wanna see Jesus now. Can he come down from heaven to see me?
Me: I don't know honey. But we can talk to Jesus anytime we want and he listens to us. He's our friend now, and we can talk to him anytime we want to even though we can't see him, he's always with you.
Taylor: But Jesus said, Let the children come to me, and I want to come to him. {I seriously almost cried at this point, because she was so serious and was all but teared up herself, the girl knows the verse and she's trying to apply it, praise God!}
Me: We can come to him in prayer and talk to him anytime we want until one day when we'll be with him in heaven forever. Won't that be amazing, to be with him forever.
Taylor: Yeah, I just wish I could see him now.
Me: Me too.
