out of the mouths of babes
The kids are watching Barney while I check email, which reminds me of something Joshua said on Sunday evening in the car. He generally has a pretty good memory for topics we discuss frequently, but this time he was a bit confused. He was talking about a rainbow, and I asked, "Why did God give us a rainbow? What does God want to tell us?" (The correct answer from our Bible story book is "He loves us.") Joshua thought for a moment and said, "Don't waste the water!" Unfortunately, this is what we've learned from Barney's tooth brushing song. Both important lessons, and who can expect a 5 year old to remember the difference between God and a dancing purple dinosaur?
