Faulkette funnies for your Friday…
Wes to Ana, “Who’s smarter, me or Mommy?” Ana to Wes, very diplomatically, “Well, Papi, you have a weird sort of intelligence.” In other words, Mommy is smarter.
Ana to me, “My teacher gave her a donut hole because she did so well on her Spanish test.” Me to Ana, “Maybe you should do a good job on your Spanish test next time so you’ll get a donut hole.” Ana to me, “It’d be easier to just buy a donut hole, Mommy.” Truth.
During dinner with the girls, we read the story of Peter and John speaking boldly about Jesus before the religious leaders of their day. Emma let out a dramatic sigh upon hearing that they were thrown in jail. Thinking she was having a spiritual moment, I asked, “Are you okay?” “No,” she moaned. “This pasta doesn’t have enough stinky cheese on it!” Making disciples, 24/7, here in the Faulk house.
Ana, on John 15, “Jesus is the vine, and we’re the branches. He’s the main idea — we’re just the details.” That’s some good theology.
