Birthday Countdown: Day Twenty-seven

My mom asked:
"If you could meet and talk with anyone(dead or alive)
who would it be and what one question would you ask them?"

When I first considered this question I thought that it might make sense to pick someone who I would not have an eternity in heaven to get to know and talk to...I mean, makes sense right? ha. Well, that would require a whole lot of assuming on my end of the equation, so I guess I will just pick someone else.

So, here goes. As a mom, I think that I have a really good one.
I would love to talk to Mary, the mother of Jesus.
The one question I would ask her is: "Tell me about the babyhood/toddlerhood/childhood of Jesus. The Bible doesn't tell us anything at all about Jesus' childhood except that He grew "in wisdom and in favor" with God. But, wouldn't you like to know the details? Did she nurse and how long? Co-sleep? Spank????? Can you imagine spanking a child you knew was the son of GOD??! Did he EVER disobey? Was he constantly teaching THEM things? Did he ever get sick? Did he love animals particularly or dislike any foods? How did she handle that? Was he a popular child? Who was his best childhood friend? Any funny stories?
I think that would be a very interesting story to hear. And I wonder why more is not included?
Oh well...I guess it's something I'll never know in my lifetime. But, that is whom I would pick...
What about you?

Well, that is just about it for the questions. I will give everyone one more chance to submit and TOMORROW is the big day! The day I reveal the winner from all those who submitted questions at that first opportunity. AND a special bonus drawing! You won't want to miss it!!!!

I have thoroughly enjoyed reading each and every question and answer!
This had been fun and I am really going to miss it. Every morning I couldn't wait to visit your blog and read the question and answer of the day. (of course, I love to visit your blog everyday all the time ;-) ) You have done a fantastic job and I am proud of the christian woman, mother, wife, friend and daughter that these posts have proven that you are. I am so very blessed to be able to call you "my daughter"!
I love and appreciate you so very much.

That's a wonderful answer! I have often wondered those things myself....

As always, great answer. I have always wondered if he "practiced" while he was growing up. My boys love to preach on occasion - do you think a toddler Jesus practiced the sermon on the mount?
Very though provoking Carrie.
Happy Birthday, in 23 minutes time...
I love you!
