After disciplining Iris today, I questioned her (as I often do)...
"Honey, you do know that when you disobey Mommy, you disobey God, right? You know that God tells you to obey Mommy and Daddy?"
"Well...no. I don't hear Him. I wish He would say it so I could HEAR Him."
"Well Sweetie, the Bible is His Word and He says it in there...you're probably not going to get to hear His actual voice say that to you, but I can read it to you."
"Okay, Mommy, but my nose is still running from crying. I need a tennis shoe to blow it."
After disciplining Katherine yesterday I asked her if she loved God...she said, "no, I love the other mean one...the devil". Got a lot of work to do with this one. :)ReplyDelete
(I've) I meant to put I've got a lot of work to do...not that you have to do anything with sweet Iris. :)ReplyDelete
haha....that's how I read it. Unfortunately that statement works both ways. She used to say the same kind of thing as Katherine. As she has gotten more and more afraid of dying, however, she has started to show a little more fear/respect towards God. I'm not glad she's afraid of dying or anything, but I'm glad she's getting a healthier attitude.ReplyDelete
