“Like Jonah”

Today Drew pitched a small fit over something and got sent to his room for disobeying. After a couple of minutes alone, I walked in his room, bent down next to him, and said, “Did you mind Mommy?”

“No,” he said. Then he added, “I not mind. Like Jonah.”

“Like Jonah?” I asked.

“Jonah not mind God. He wan (ran) away. Not tell people stop doing bad things.”

Just when I think I’m only talking to hear myself, he reminds me that he hears every word and is taking it all in.

After our chat, we spent lunchtime in  his Bible talking about Jonah and followed it up with a section of Jonah: A Veggie Tales Movie to reiterate the biiiig fish swallowing Jonah!

How I love my days with my babies and teaching them about the love of God! I AM BLESSED BEYOND MEASURE!
