Gavin again is pretty funny about some of the things he comes up with in different situations. Today I have 2 I would like to share.
On Sunday night we had the youth over for a little Christmas party. We did the type of gift exchange where you can steal a gift from someone if you like it enough. I let Gavin have my number and we were 11 so we had a number of gifts that were opened in front of us including a sponge bob square pants toy binoculars. His eyes got real big and I told him that we could steal that from the person that took it if we wanted to. He looked at me and said with a serious face. “That is not nice to steal from people and God doesn’t want us to steal.” I then told him that it was ok in this situation. He refused to give into such a sin as stealing. Needless to say he didn’t take it, but chose to open another gift.
Yesterday we decided to take the kids to Chucky Cheeses since that had never been there. Now I don’t know if he was serious, but he sure did seem like he was. He kept calling the place we were at Chucky Jesus. We kept on correcting him, but he continued to argue that it was indeed Chuck Jesus and we were all wrong.
He seems to be trying to change things one at a time. I am not joking when I call him a “man of God”, I have never heard such a young kid talk about God as much as he does. He relies on God for everything and realizes that the power is in God’s hands. Anytime someone gets an ouchy or gets sick he lets them know that God will take care of it and He will make them better.
