Giving God the boot...

Seems that Luke - darling curmudgeon Luke -  has given God the boot:

Luke spent a good portion of yesterday telling me, retelling me and not-so-gently reminding me that God lives in his heart. In fact, he let the whole neighbourhood know, every chance he got:

Man-cutting-down-tree: Hey there, big fella!
Luke: God lives in my heart.
Man: Uh....
Me: Sorry. He's just learning the "God is everywhere" thing.
Man: I'm not a religious sort...
Me: Oh, that's alright. Luke doesn't mind. And since God lives in Luke's heart, I reckon He doesn't either.
Man: Uh....right.
Me: You didn't see the humour there, did you?
Man: Sorry.

Evangelist [ɪˈvændʒɪlɪst] n
1. (Christian Religious Writings / Bible) any of the writers of the New Testament Gospels: Matthew, Mark, Luke, or John
2. (Christianity / Protestantism) a senior official or dignitary of the Mormon Church

Today, my wee apostle spent the morning with my friend Heather. This is what she posted to my Facebook wall, after snack:

Heather: Luke would you like a glass of water?
Luke: God died.
Heather: Pardon? Would you like a glass of water?

Luke:  God died. He died yesterday.
Heather: Here's your water, li'l man. Drink up!

I am sensing some Divine Intervention in Luke's future. Or therapy. Whichever...

And you? Got a fickle evangelist in your family?


  1. I am laughing. I love how kids just say it all.

    In church last fall, it was the children's sermon. The pastor asked the kids what God looked like. Vivian said, "Half man, half woman."

    I was a proud Mommy.

    The next week, William, after being up for communion, said loudly, "What was THAT all about?"

  2. Bbaaaahhhhaa! Aren't kids the BEST? Sometimes I wanna high-five my kids for speaking aloud all the thoughts in my head. Of course, I mostly want to dive into the nearest opening of the Earth's core, but still.

    And really, can anyone TRULY know that Vivian's not right about God? S/He could be half/half, right?
