Cigarettes, dinosaurs, and spontaneous worship

Daddy, I smell something I don’t like.  It smells like cigarettes and cake.

R: I went to have lunch with my friend, Andrea.
A: Does she talk?
R: Yeah.
A: Can I talk a her?
R: Yeah, maybe next time you could meet her.
A: But I didn’t come!

God is above me,
God is above me,
God is above me up in heaven.

I am below God,
I am below God,
I am below God on the earth.

I like to write, but it’s hard to know what to write, that’s why I like to write from the Bible.

But what if Jesus turns?

– Micaela, while discussing what it means to follow Jesus on the straight and narrow path

I feel like this water could be as soft as a coat because it’s so warm.

E: Are there dinosaurs around here?
D: No, not anymore.
M: Even the ones that don’t fly?
D: Yes, even those.
E: Why not?
D: They’re extinct
M: What’s extinct?
D: It means they’re not alive anymore.  They aren’t having any more babies.
E: Why aren’t dinosaurs around here anymore?
D: Because they’re extinct.
E: Why are they stinky?
D: They aren’t stinky, they’re extinct.
E: Why are they a-stink?
D: Because they aren’t alive anymore.  There are none left to have babies.
M: So instead of seeing dinosaurs we could just go to dinosaur birthday parties, or draw pictures of them and put them on the refrigerator so we can look at them and remember them.

It’s so good to be at church, [repeat each line 10x]
O, thank you, God, for everything!
Thank you, God, for church,
O, thank you, God, for your Holy Bible!
God is great to me,
O, thank you, God, for you!

– Micaela, Emeth & Annie, spontaneous song on the steps
