Out of the mouths of babes

Conversation with Rylyn at 21 months old:

Me: "Can you say, 'I will listen to Mommy' ?"

Rylyn: "I will listen...to me."

Me: "No, 'I will listen to mommy.' "

Rylyn: "I will listen to...meeeee."

Me: "No, 'I will listen to mommy.' "

Rylyn: "I will listen to..."

Me: "Mommy."

Rylyn: "Meeeeee. Rylyn. I will listen to Rylyn."

This is where I gave up and started laughing.

Bible Reflections:

"But whoever listens to me will dwell safely. And will be secure, without fear of evil." - Proverbs 1:33

-Too often I listen to everyone but God. Advice. Gossip. When I take time to listen to what God has to say in His Word, I can be safe and secure in my decisions.

Forgive me Lord for when I act like a toddler and only want to listen to myself. Thank you for when you respond with love and laughter and help me to hear Your still small voice in the everyday. Amen.

  1. This conversation could totally be had in an intermediate classroom. Teacher: Did you get your homework done? Student: We had homework? Oh I did not hear you! :)
