Sillies of the Superficial Variety

But the LORD said to Samuel, "Do not consider his appearance or his height, for I have rejected him. The LORD does not look at the things man looks at. Man looks at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart." 1 Samuel 16:7 NIV

So maybe my kids aren't quite beyond the outward appearance-thing yet...

  • A few nights ago, Jadon's bedtime prayer went something like this...

    "Thank you God for Gramma and Pappy. Thank you for Pappy having a beard. Thank you for Gramma no having a beard..."

  • I had the following conversation today. Abby, Jadon, and I were walking to the bus stop to get the big boys after school. As we passed by our neighbor's house, their small terrier rushed out to the full length of his (her?) leash and began barking incessantly. Obviously reassured by the restraining leash, Jadon was intrigued. "Why he do that?" he asked. I answered, "Well, I think he knows this is his house, and he wants to ask us what we're doing here." There was a pause during which I figured the children were processing my answer. Then Abby piped up, "I think he was saying he really likes my shoes!"

...but they sure do make me laugh!
