Orange, Mouse, Gorilla!

Real Estate Agent with REMAX Gold Coast Realtors Oxnard

My niece is teaching her children not to use the name of the Lord in vain.  As a result her six year old son was  alarmed to hear another child she cares for say "Oh My God!"  He ran to his mother and said "Mom" he just said Orange, Mouse, Gorilla!  His mother, not hearing the child and not knowing what her son was talking about replied and asked, "What's wrong with saying orange, mouse, gorilla  He responded..."the first letters, mom, he said the first letters."  Even in reporting this incident he refused to use the name of the Lord in vain. 

Orange, Mouse, Gorilla!  I'm going to start using that one!

There is nothing like looking at the world through the eyes of a child! If we all could just go back to Jesus as little children and learn to have that love, faith and trust in Him, such as that.

Steve:  You're so welcome.  I'm convinced that even God has a sense of humor!

Mike:  Orange, Mouse, Gorilla!  You are so right!

Paul:  I certainly agree...the love of a child is so pure, their faith is limitless and their trust in God is exemplary.  Pleae Lord, may I always have a child's heart.

Constina - It is really interesting how children see things.  If only parents would listen to their children more often and hear what they have to say.

Petra, you are so right!  A child's voice can be wise and powerful if we would only hear and listen.  Thank you for stopping by :).
