A Sunday School conversation

Ezra's Sunday school teacher told me that they were discussing how people differ in the amount that they like to talk around others in their class on Sunday morning. Ezra said that God gave him a brain so that he could think. Then he said, "I think a lot of thoughts. . .sometimes I don't share them. . .but, mostly I do."

A couple of handsome boys!

I love Sundays -- all dressed up!

We're on the move.

Hello world. Lucas is on the move. His particular favorite things to get into are the dog food and Legos. I spent most of Sunday afternoon Dear God, please give me another set of eyes!

Evangelist Ezra at it again

Ezra and Evelyn were coloring at the kitchen table this morning, when evangelist Ezra decided to speak:
Ezra: "We are God's people, Evelyn, so we should not lie."
A few moments later,
Ezra: "Mom and Dad don't want you to go to he-el (hell), so you should trust in Jesus."
Evelyn: "Okay, I will trust in Jesus."

"Mommy" Evelyn

As I was doing the dishes one evening, Evelyn informed me that she was going to sweep the floor and that I needed to "stay in the other room" while she did that. She then seriously admonished me to "be obedient."
