'God is a girl!'

We were not talking about God. I don’t remember exactly what we were talking about- dolls, teacups, being nice to her baby sister- but I know it was not about God.

I said something like, ‘That doesn’t make God happy. You want to make Him happy don’t you?’

And with a smile on her face, my 3 year old replied, ‘Its a girl!’

‘Who is a girl?’ I asked her, amused.

And with a know-it-all smile, she replied, ‘God is a girl!’

‘How do you know?’

‘I just know it!’

Well, if she knows it, then what am I to say to a 3 year old, who is proud to be a girl, and is learning that God is the most important being- more powerful than all the superheroes she know. She will learn on her own, or maybe I will.
