A boy's unwavering faith

I want to share a sweet story I read on a social site that I am on. I asked this mom for her permission to share it with you all. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. Its amazing the faith our children can have!

Hey mom? How can God have created the Earth in 7 days? Dinosaurs died 65mil yrs ago!
This question came to me when we were watching some show on the discovery Channel.They were talking about sea creatures evolving from dinosaurs. Sounded great at the time but then the next day this question came. I have to admit, my faith wavered for a moment with this question. How is it possible that God created all in 6 days, when dinosaurs became extinct 65million years ago? I went from being firm on my faith in Christ, to sobbing that everything I learned was a lie. I went to bed and woke up at 3am. I never wake up unless someone is trying to get my attention. I went online and Googled creation and dinosaurs. Opened the first page. I get it now. And I believe it. I want to believe it. I prayed that I would believe it, and that my son would. When we woke up later that day, my son and I read it together. Do you know what I get for a comment from him? See mom! I heard you crying and knew you thought God was lying! I prayed you would find out he wasn't! Its the Discovery Channel lying. But can we still watch it? I like all the animals! Yeah way to make me cry all over again! LOL
