I was doing one of my favorite activities the other night: watching children! Oh how I enjoy that! :) I had three babies, a four year old and a five year old (all girls). I was sitting at the table, calmly drawing rainbows with the older two girls when this conversation transpired:
"Did you know God has a mustache?" the five year old said, as serious as can be.
"Oh?" I questioned.
"Yeah. I saw him. In a book."
"Yeah!" the four year old agreed. "I saw him too. His mustache is really, really long."
"Yeah it is." the five year old agreed. "But not all the way to the floor."
"Yeah, not to the floor." the four year old echoed.
Huh. I never knew that before. But you can't argue with a five year old who saw it in a book. :)
Whether God truly has a mustache or not, I couldn't say. But I find the conversations of children amusing, which is why I shared this anecdote. :) Goodness, though, when I saw your comment today it was truly a throwback for me...it's been so many years since I wrote this post, I'd entirely forgotten about it.ReplyDelete
