Nocturnal Life

Samaria has been memorizing some Scripture.  This morning, while reciting John 3:16, she said, “For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have nocturnal life.”  And then she gave me this triumphant grin.  :-)  Love her.

“Taste it,” I said to Samaria, thrusting my half eaten apricot towards her little mouth.

“What is it?”

“An apricot.”


“Taste it,” before I thrust again.

“Why does it smell like conditioner?” she asked as she took the small, skeptical nibble.


A Super Hero’s Workout

Samaria woke up before me, and when I got up she was kind of sweaty & wearing a strange outfit.

“Mom, I worked out.  I lifted something heavy, did jumping jacks and then pushups.”


“You want to know why?”


“Because I’m going to be a super hero.  And not just any superhero.  A super hero that loves Jesus!”
