Get the Word Out

July 3,  2012

Tonight Max (6) asked me if we could send Obama some cash in the mail as a birthday present to America "to help make America an even better place." Yesterday he asked if we could call Uncle Russell and see if he could help us put this message in the newspaper for everyone in Siloam Springs to see: "God created the whole world! You must believe in Him!" When I asked him what made him think about that idea, he said: "I heard the words "the whole truth must be heard" in a song, and I thought, 'YES! Jesus must be heard!'" He thought the newspaper was the best way to get the word out. Wonder what this little guy will be thinking about tomorrow?!

Work it out

Overheard in my backyard this morning:
Xander: Millie, Can Ladd PLEASE be an adopted alien?!?
Millie: No, Xander. “Ladd” means “A small man.” He can’t be an alien.
Xander: Ok, we will have to do rock, paper, scissors to decide.

Free Wheelin’

At our breakfast table this morning, Millie (4) suddenly announced: “You know the problem with sin? God gave people free wheels. I don’t understand that.”

The Potty Train

Mom: Let’s stop by the bathroom first. Look, that little friend is probably stopping here, too.
Millie: She is pretty little. I don’t think she is on the potty train yet.

Xander and the Bible

Xander: Mom, What happens in the first five chapters of Isaiah?
Mom: In the year King Uziah died, The prophet Isaiah saw a vision of God in Heaven.
Xander: That was in Isaiah 6. I want to know what happened in chapters 1-5.

Conversations with Xander

Xander (holding folded paper and pen, ready to make a new book): Mom, I’m going to write my own Bible. 

Me: I love it when you write books. But you know that God’s true Word is the only real Bible, so you can’t really write your own Bible. 

Xander: Ok. I’ll just write my own Septuagint.
