The Bible According to DevynEveryone should have children if for no other reason than they get to tell some hilarious stories. Like the one I'm going to share here.
I have a favorite spot to have my quiet times. It involves pillows and sitting by the fireplace. Add a cup of my hazel nut coffee and its my happy place. Without fail, the children will wake up, rubbing sleep from their eyes, and stumble into the living room to find me in my spot.
Tonight Devyn came into the living room with the pink Precious Moments bible from my childhood. I'd gifted her with it and you'd think I'd handed her the moon.
So as I sat on the couch nursing Reagan, I watched as Devyn settled herself in my quiet time spot. "I'm going to read the bible," she announced and laid the bible open on her lap.
Soon she was babbling away, "reading" to herself and Hudson who had decided to sit next to her. I then decided to start listening more closely to what she was saying.
She turned a page. "This page says you will die, Hudson." There was a pause. "You will die and I am the truth."
Devyn turned another page.
"This page says Jesus had a birthday party." Another pause. And then she continued. "Party, party, party!"
The sound of another page turning.
"And this page says parents must spank your children."
Oh yeah, the tears were streaming as I shook with quiet laughter. Moments like those make this life so much fun!
