Two for the Price of One

Two funny stories that remind me why I’m so excited we’re having another baby:

1. We’ve tried real hard to teach Jake about God and all the great things that God can do. So, every time it rains I ask Jake, “who makes it rain?” and he answers, “God” (try to teach him the small things and build to the young earth theory of creationism a bit later). Anyway, the other night Jake and I were walking home from our neighbors after dropping off a Christmas gift. It was sprinkling a bit outside but nothing really bad. All of a sudden, Jake screams out, “Stop it God, Stop it!!!” I asked him immediately, “what’s wrong buddy?” He said, “I’m telling God to make the rain stop; I don’t like it.” Very funny!

2. We’ve also tried to teach Jake about the real meaning of Christmas. Of course, we’ve told him the story of the manger, the shepherds, the wise men, Mary and Joseph and all the good stuff. So, on the way to church Sunday morning I quizzed Jake on what the Bible taught about baby Jesus. Here’s what he said; “Jesus was boring in a manger.” I guess his mom taught him that after one of my sermons.

Now you can see why I’m excited that we’re having another one! The ones we have are so fun!!!
