While trying to explain to the kiddos why God sometimes disciplines us because he loves us, I decided to use an example from our own lives.
Me: "It's like me. Sometimes I will discipline you because ..."
(I was hoping to hear Sidge say you love us.) Instead he replied:
Sidge: "We are bad."
Abigail: "What is that on my leg?"
Abigail: "There. It's a boo boo."
JB: "No, that is a freckle."
Abigail: "Why do I have a freckle?"
JB: "God made that. It's beautiful."
Abigail: "No. If it was pink or purple it would be beautiful."
