What Have You Heard Lately?

Sometimes I hear the funniest things, especially when the kids are completely serious.

Today for example, I called Samuel to come and he explained that he couldn't come right away because, "... he had been captured.  Ellie wants me to marry her."

Woof-Woof officiated and the vows went like this.  "Do you take Ellie to be your lovable wife?"

And then there was the day a few weeks ago when the kids were reciting memory verses for me.  They had several to learn that week including John 15:17  "These things I command you, that ye love one another." and John 15:13 "Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends."

I asked who wanted to go first.  Elisabeth was so excited, she jumped up from the table and waved her arm wildly saying, "Me! Me! Me!"  

And this is what she said, "These things I command you, that you lay down your life for a friend."
