It's Not for Decoration
Last night Dave and I had a rare treat. We both got to lie in bed with Elizabeth before bed. Usually I am putting James down or he's crawling around being crazy while we're attempting a calm relaxing time reading books. But, James had already gone to sleep, so I got to join Dave and Elizabeth for bedtime. Dave read a VeggieTales book about how God made all of us special. When he finished I asked Elizabeth if she knew a way God had made her special. She said no. So, I told her a couple of ways that I thought God had made her special - he hass given her heart that likes to help people and a personality that is very passionate. We talked about it for a minute or two. Then Dave said that God gave her a pretty nose. I asked her what she thought about what we had said - whether she thought they were true. She said that mine was but, "not what Daddy said. I use my nose for smelling, so it's not pretty because it's not for decoration." Dave and I thought it was too funny not to share.
