These all came out tonight.
Me: Ok, now lets pray and be quiet so we can listen to hear Jesus talk to us.
(after a minute)
My Daughter: I don’t hear anything I think he’s sleeping.
Me: (deep breath) Well, Jesus actually doesn’t sleep in Heaven.
My Daughter: (Perplexing look)
Me: I know we just finished reading about Jesus calming the waves on the boat & and he was sleeping in that story, but now in Heaven he doesn’t sleep.
My daughter: I think he’s just talking to other people so we need to wait until he’s finished so he can talk to us.
My daughter: Lets pretend I’m Mary and you’re Joseph.
Me: Ok, lets get on the donkey and go to Bethlehem to have Jesus.
My daughter: No, we have to get married first and go to Tahoe.
While praying for our victims of human trafficking, (I call them kid slaves with my daughter), I told her that many of them are orphans so we need to pray for God to give them mommies and daddies.
My daughter: What’s an orphan?
Me: A little kid who doesn’t have a mom or a dad.
Me daughter: Why?
Me: Well, uh, (gulp) because some parents left or some died (gulp)..so we need to pray for them.
My daughter: Dad….don’t die…
