How old is your mother?

A little boy was asked the question one day, how old is your mother? He replied that she was 5 years old. How can that be? Well she only had me five years ago, so she is five.
I don’t quite think that was what the person had in mind when they asked that question.
To be perfectly honest I believe life begins at conception. I celebrated my wife’s first Mother’s day by building her a rose garden, this with her only a few weeks pregnant. What we call a fetus is a growing child. Don’t believe me then ask Elisabeth who had this experience in Luke 1:41,44 “And it came to pass, that, when Elisabeth heard the salutation of Mary, the babe leaped in her womb; and Elisabeth was filled with the Holy Ghost…For, lo, as soon as the voice of thy salutation sounded in mine ears, the babe leaped in my womb for joy.” At this point in time Elisabeth was about 6 months pregnant with John the Baptist and had also already gone through the change of life so she shouldn’t have been pregnant to begin with. Oh, she also couldn’t get pregnant before hand either. This was all a miracle from God.
