Kids Say, vol. 14

Amariah:  “Abel, I hope Ande is a boy because you don’t have a brother.”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Elliana (pointing at the alphabet poster):  “There’s the O.”
Mommy:  “That’s right!  What does an ‘O’ say?”
Elliana, confidently:  “/k/!”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Amariah (praying for my parents’ dog who has an ulcerated eye):  “Dear God, please help Barney’s eye to not fall out and not hurt so bad.  In Jesus’ name we pray.  Amen.”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Abel tripped up the unfinished basement steps a few days ago and scraped his shins on the front edge of the step.  I, of course, offered my motherly comfort and sympathies; but after his crying had gone on a little too long, I politely asked, “Abel, how are you ever going to play football if you can’t fall down without crying?”  His smart reply came, “Mommy, that’s why they play sports on grass and sand… so they don’t get hurt.”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Abel and Amariah were looking out the front door this evening, admiring the stars in the sky.  The next thing I knew, I heard them around a corner praying together.  Abel passionately prayed, “Dear God, thank You for the beautiful sky that You created, and thank You for Your Son Jesus dying on the cross for our sins.  Amen.”
