Friend of God

Did you have an imaginary friend when you were younger? I think I did but I can’t remember her name. I’m guessing it was Sally or Sue, assuming it was even a girl.

The other day Tori was outside swinging the swings….not on the swings but swinging the empty swings. I could see her chatting away.

Later I asked, "Were you swinging someone on the swings", thinking perhaps she has an imaginary friend.

Her reply, "Yep, I was swinging God."
Me: "You were playing with God?"
T: "Yes, He is my friend!"

Okay how cute is that? My daughter’s imaginary friend is God.

By the way, I completely understand that God is NOT imaginary and He really is there, around, etc....just go with the flow of a 3 year old and the proverbial imaginary friend thing.

imaginery to a kid interchanges with invisible.

How precious! And Tori gets cuter with every picture I see of her. I miss her so.

I bet God enjoyed sitting on that swing and chatting with Tori.

LOL at your disclaimer at the end, btw.

Don't you just love it when they really start to get it. He's always with her!

Do you know the song "I am a friend of God" by Michael Gungor? He did AFT last year and he was our praise and worship leader at our church. This song was nominated for a Dove award! It's awesome!
