contrast

"mommy... you are SO lucky."
"whys that?"

"because i will never, EVER, forget about God!"
awww...

and now, before your heart gets too warm, there's this one:
"i do NOT like church!"

"why?"

"because God is very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, VERY, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, VERY, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, VERY MEAN!"

"why is he mean, bennett?"

"because i don't want to go to church!"

"but why is God mean?"

"because I. don't. like HE!"

but never fear. his new favorite song these days is one he learned in that terrible, tortuous place called sunday school. he started singing it the other day but couldn't quite get the words right. his face lit right up when anthony helped him out: "our God is awesome God he reigns..."

bennett was shocked. "you know that song?"

yes, bennett. any christian alive in the late 80's definitely knows that song.

Now I don't feel too terrible that Luke says he doesn't want to go to church. I thought I was doing something wrong, that I wasn't leading him in the right direction, but it's comforting to know other people have the same problem! Thanks for the wonderful posts & pictures!! Love ya!
