Keith started tonight’s family devotional off with a question.
“Does anybody know who Jesus’ cousin was?” Surprisingly, it was Ben who answered,
“He eats bugs!” which obviously got a laugh from everyone. And to which Keith responded,
“What was his name, Ben?” And to which Benjamin responded,
“Doofah!” which also got a hearty laugh. Adam, our serious little Bible scholar as of late, corrected him that in fact his name was John (as in the Baptist).
But throughout the rest of the Bible story, EVERY time John’s name was mentioned, Ben whispered adorably to Adam,
“No, his name is Doofah.”
Keith and I had a really hard time getting through the story tonight, to be honest.
Lisa is a grateful, born-again follower of Jesus Christ who has spent her adult life on the Gospel in several global contexts. She is the wife of one wonderful, jungle-gym of a man, who is to her the single most ravishing piece of flesh on planet earth (stolen good-heartedly from Christine Caine). She is a dedicated home educator to their four beautiful children, ages 6 to 12, whom she would be happy to gush over any time. She is an avid reader and a storyteller, an aspiring writer, a missionary to the nations and a singer of His praises, a loyal friend, an obsessive-compulsive Googler, and comedienne extraordinaire on her best days. She would also like to think that she is a loyal and loving, truth-telling friend.
