Out of the Mouth of Bethany #11

So the other night when Bethany was taking her bath, she did something and I told her I was impressed. She apparantly didn't know that word and became obsessed with it for the duration of her bath. That's just a little background - it explains why I asked something I did later. Here's the conversation that happened when I was putting her in bed after reading the story of Jesus being tempted by the devil.

B - Mommy, why is the devil mean? Did God make him that way?
Me - No, God made him good, but he chose to be mean. He thought that he could be bigger and better than God, but no one can be bigger or better than God. He's bigger than all of us.
B - Does God have feet?
Me - Well, I don't know. We don't really know what God looks like.
B - He looks like Baby Jesus.
Me - That's true, because Baby Jesus is God.
B - (in a whisper) Wow - that blesses me.
Me - That impresses you?
B - No. That blesses me in my heart!

I think you already know how impressed I am with your parenting skills, but I just thought I'd say it again. You and Raymond must be great parents because you have such a great little girl.
