While studying The Lord's Prayer with Thomas we were talking about what the words "Thy will be done" mean. I explained that God has a plan for each of our lives, and even though we have free will, God's plan will always be what is best for us. I said that God already had a plan for him to maybe be married and have children, or maybe he would be a computer geek like dad. Below is the actual conversation which followed.
THOMAS: Oh, no way, Mom. I am not going to be a priest.
ME: (trying not to sound too diappointed) Why not, Thomas?
THOMAS: I am NOT going to work every single weekend!
I guess he already has plans which involve weilding a sword and slaying his enemies with that impish grin!
