While driving around we passed a cemetery. Harrison has just started recently paying attention to things out his window and asked what all the flowers were for.
We explained about graves, and the bodies buried there, but that the person's soul has gone on to live in either Heaven or Hell. We used the opportunity to again reaffirm to him our need for God's grace and forgiveness for our salvation so we can live in Heaven.
Harrison asked if various family members would be in Heaven. He asked about living with Jesus all the time and never being afraid about dying. He listened for a long time as we answered his questions as best as we thought an almost 3 year old could understand.
Finally he said, "I like Heaven a lot! I can't wait to live will be fun forever!"
