What Jesus gave Isabella

Yet another funny "Jesus" story from Isabella. I hope I don't gross you out, but this morning, Isabella had a booger hanging from her nose, so I told her to "come here and let me get it." After I did, she said "Ouch Mommy, you hurt my nose" Me: "I'm sorry, I didn't mean to hurt your nose" Her: "JESUS gave me my nose!" I guess it was worse that I hurt her nose since Jesus gave it to her. After stifling a giggle, I was impressed that my child was actually listening to me in Sunday School yesterday because we were talking about things that God gives us and what we can give to Him. I said "Yes, Jesus did give you your nose,...and your pretty hair,.... and your little lips..... what else did Jesus give you?" To which she responded "Boogers!" I couldn't stop laughing and she said "Silly Jesus." Her "honesty" made me think of the joy I get from my children and even from the silly things Isabella says. And just the way her little mind is thinking made me think of the joy God is getting from her as well because He is the author of all joy.

I don't think you could gross out a mother with talk of boogers - that goes with the territory now! :) Funny story though!

PS - I meant to ask you if you've heard of BOZ? It's an animated DVD series for kids that talks about God. Kayla loves these DVDs (and we don't let her watch much TV) and she has 2 of the Boz books too. In each book and DVD they always pray at dinner time and bed time. They talk about God and how he created the world around us; they are really great teaching videos. I found them through the MOPS shop at http://shop.gospelcom.net/epages/MOPShop.storefront/45be72bc03d27b4e271dccfd8417070d/Catalog/1285

Just thought you might be interested!

LOL. From the mouth of babes.

Reminds of Matt Dillon's character years ago in I think it was "Tex" when he's talking to reporters and they ask him where he got his good look from and he says "God gave me my face but he let me pick my nose!"
