One Of The Scary Questions...

So we were going to Trader Joe's for Ohs today. I was turning off Mt. Prospect Rd. onto Rand. It's a complicated 3 way intersection with a lot of gridlock, and there was a lot of stupid going on. As I managed to make my turn with inches to spare I sighed "thank you, God." Katie asked "Who's that?"

Now, how do you explain God to a 4 yr old? I told her that God was the boss of the universe, and created everything. This set her and Julie off into "did he make ___ ?" all the rest of the way to Trader Joe's.
I said a lot of yeses.

This bought me time, but now I have to really think about how to address the issue the next time she asks.
Any suggestions?
