Lauren's Bible Interpation
Every night before bed, Lauren "reads" her bible then I read it. (We have made all the way through Matthew and Mark, now on Luke.) Most of the time when she "reads" it is gibberish with a few "Gods" thrown in. But last night she grab it and said, "This is God's Holy Word. It says right here that Lauren can stay up all day long." Hiding my laughter and thinking quickly, I respond, "Oh, I don't think it does say that, but it does say to obey your Mommy and Daddy, and so for you, I am sad to say that means you have to go to bed." To which she responded, "Oh Man!" Too funny. But I am happy that she understands that the Bible is God's Holy Word and that she is starting to put together that Bible means something and is a guideline by which to live, even if it doesn't say little girls can stay up all day long!
