bible stories: the creation

two nights ago, i was reading a children's bible to the kids. i was reading the story of the creation. i read to them how god created light, the land, the ocean, the animals, the birds, the fishes in the ocean, the plants, and finally, man and woman.

after i read to them that god rested on the seventh day, miggy raised a question that is not easy to explain to a 7-year old, 4-year old and 3-year old kids.

"mama, how did he do all that when there wasn't anything on earth yet?"

this question would have been easy to answer if it was asked by an adult. but from a child, it becomes too complicated to explain.

so, what was my reply?

"just stick to the story, okay? he's a god, he can do those stuff."

hehe i know i should always answer questions like this with more meaningful answers. maybe something that i'd have learned from convent school. oh well, sometimes, miggy simply catches me off guard with some of his questions. there are times like this when i just can't quickly think of a witty or meaningful answer.
