Earthshattering Bible Lessons from the Family

Brown Eyes made this clever deduction the other day when talking to his little brother:

Brown Eyes: (indignantly) "The Bible says we should treat others the way we want to be treated. You should do what the Bible says!"

A lesson we can all take to heart, eh? Who knows what Lil'bit was doing. Obviously, ol' Brown Eyes, being the scholarly sort of fellow that he is...he had him on this one.


Later in the night, the riveting saga continues:

DH was digging around in the frig like a crazed, hormonal woman looking for chocolate (can I get a witness... anybody?) He wanted something sweet. He had been on his confectionery safari for some time, and I heard him implore the Heavens: "Lord, help me find something..."

Do you know that man almost immediately found a hunk of chocolate chip cookie dough that I had forgotten about?

He must be living right is all I can say...chocolate chip cookie dough on demand. Sheesh.

I am not kidding, I was just CRAVING choc. chip cookies. Or brownies. Really, anything with chocolate...and I don't have any chocolate in the house. So if I show up unexpectedly on your doorstep, you'll understand, right?

Your boys are exceptionally cute. :)

Jackie's right - your boys are exceptionally cute!

I love the phrase "confectionary safari".

And the next time I'm in *need* of chocolate, I'm calling your husband to talk to God about it for me. Clearly that man has clout.

Perhaps DH ought to be saying prayers for each of us. Ha! Tell those darlin' boyz Aunt Chel loves them and says HOLA!

What a great post! Your little boy is quite in tune to catch his brother on "treat others how you want to be treated"-that is so cute! AND man, I wish I could request cookie dough on demand...

Thanks for stopping by my site, and for your compliment on my poem! This whole poetry thing is a new venture for me, so I always appreciate feedback.

I've been craving sweets, too, lately. Wish I could have them appear on demand!

Oh that chocolate is too funny, maybe he has a direct connection with God? haha

Hi My sister..
First I just wanted to say thank you from my heart for your prayers I have an update on my blog. Your sons are so precious!! I can totally relate with my DH looking in the fridge for sweets in our case there was no chocolate for him lol so he had to settle for some cereal. I enjoyed reading this it made me giggle, now I'm going to tease my DH and tell him how the Lord found favor on your husband and he got to have some chocolate lol.
