What does God look like -
The preschool teacher watched as the little boy scrawled something on his paper. "what are you drawing?" she asked. "I'm drawing a picture of God" was the little boys reply.  "Oh you can't do that" she said "Nobody knows what God looks like." Without looking up the boy answered. "well they will now."
