From the mouths of babes...

Earlier today, this exchange between a child and his mother...

Son: Mommy, is being a mommy hard? Being in charge of so many kids.

Mother: Hmmm. I don't know if I'd call it hard. Maybe busy. Yeah, that's a good word for it.

Son: Sometimes you yell at us.

Mother: Yes, that's because I'm impatient. I shouldn't be.

Son: I like discipline. If you love discipline, you love knowledge. If you don't, you're stupid.

Mother: A fool.

Son: Sometimes I want to just ask for a spanking.....But I don't.

Sounds like a 'dangerous boy' who was listening during the Proverbs 12 lesson last Wednesday night!

Yes, and praise God! Be salt and light, dear brother. We will pray for you both, as you would want. Love,
