Bedtime Stories

Tonight I read the boys the story of Daniel. As I finished Charlie said, "I heard a different story of Daniel, Mommy. When the Philistines were trying to break through..."

"Uh, do you mean David and the Philistines?"

"Yeah, David, and David stood there and waved his arms, and you know what? GOD opened the sea!!"

"I think you mean Moses, honey."

"Oh yeah, Moses! God and Moses opened the sea and the people walked thru it. Then they got tired. Then the Philistines (he means Egyptians) and their king were trying to break through, so they ran after the people. And then God just splashed the water back on top of them and their horses!!" He's so excited at this point.

Then he looks at me and calmly says, "I wish I could've been there with Moses and the people."

Me, too, Charlie. Me, too.

Hee hee! I love this!! Reminds me of a conversation where one of my kids had a few Star Wars characters woven into their narration of a Bible story--it did make for quite a drama!!

So thrilled you stopped by my place--loved what you shared about Joseph-so true!

I'm off to read more of your posts!

Blessings!
