At church I have been attending a ladies Bible study by Angela Thomas, When Wallflowers Dance. It has been a great study on becoming a woman of righteous confidence. The study always lasts until about 9pm so when I get home the babies are usually in bed. Tonight, as I walked past the boys room, I heard a sweet whisper to come in and give a "hug."

Leyton: Hey mommy where u been?
Me: I went to church.
Leyton: You diiiid? Did you go take pictures in the hallway? (we just took directory pics)
Me: No, not tonight I went and learned about God.
Leyton: You diiiid? God was so happy.
Me: Yes, I learned that God is big. And he can handle ANYTHING we give to Him.
Leyton: Yeah, God is a GIANT!
Me: No, God is not a giant, not big like that.
Leyton: Yeah, God does not want us to be sad. One time, he went down the beanstalk and I cried.
Me: Oh, you did?
Leyton: Yeah, and God wants us to be happy, not sad. And He told that whale to gobble up Jonah. And that whale say "YUM! YUM!"
Leyton: ....Yeah he says YUM YUM...and then he threw Jonah up. And then that man got in that tree and God said "YOU COME DOWN!"
Me: Alright, good stories. Night Night! love you.
Leyton: Love you too mommy, thanks for tucking me in with those stories.
Me: You are welcome!
Talk about Bible story brain overload. We will be working on clearing up these woven tales of trees, beanstalks, and whales!
