The birds nest beside the streams and sing among the branches of the trees.
Ezra and I sat in silence and listened to the birds sing while we ate lunch today. After a while, I asked him "what do you think the birds are singing?"
He said immediately:
"Jesus. And the squirrels are singing, Holy, Holy, Holy".
I was taking Canaan to tennis lessons the other day and he and I got to talking about getting upset. Canaan is rather level headed but occasionally will get a bit of an attitude problem (usually when he is sleepy). Anyhow, we got to talking about it and he said to me:
"Sometimes when I am mad, my mouth says what I don't want it to say.
My mouth doesn't always say what I want it to."
Yes Canaan, so true of us all, so true...
