You never know what to expect with kids these days. B for instance has left me laughing and worrying at the same time.
Last Sunday, after church, as we were in the car driving towards the restaurant to have lunch with my in-laws, B suddenly announces that she has learned a new memory verse about obedience. Prodded on to say what it is, she suddenly changes gears and says she cannot remember.
“All I remember is that it starts with a letter C”, she declares.
Her dad asks her, “Is it Collosians? Or Corinthians, maybe?”
“It’s Selonians!” she proclaims.
We both correct her, “There’s no book in the Bible called selonians. Perhaps you misheard your teacher. It is Thessalonians.”
She shakes her head, “No, it really is Selonians!” she insists adamantly.
“There’s no such book.” C goes on to enumerate the books in the Bible, “Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, Acts, Romans, Corinthians…”
Her eyes light up and her voice is suddenly giddy with unrestrained excitement , “Dad! Romance? That's so cool! The bible has Romance 101? I want to read that!”
