Well, I wasn’t going to do another Midnight Madness tonight, but I began to think twice after reading to my daughter from her Bedtime Bible.
Normally this book isn’t too bad, aside from the very glossed over parts about what truly happened in certain stories. I suppose they figure it’s a children’s book, so they have to keep it somewhat discreet.
However, after reading it tonight, I have finally come to realize just how ill advised this book really is. And I began to wonder if this is the reason why so many Christians are often left confused on how they should treat other people.
Here’s one of the bits of advice given for today, on “How to Treat Friends…”
“If your friend is sad, do not try to cheer him up, that will only make him feel worse.”
Do not try to cheer him up??? What? I nearly took the book and threw it against the wall! Thank goodness she wasn’t reading this piece of garbage by herself, and I’m fairly sure we can find a much better book to read next time. Thankfully we have a whole set of Dr. Seuss!
So there I was, reading aloud the features that come with the new iPhone X…
“The super retina display dazzles the eyes and employs techniques to precisely follow the curves of the design all the way to the elegantly roundedcorners.The first OLED screen that rises to the standards. Familiar gestures make navigation natural and intuitive. Instead of pressing a button, a single swipe takes you home from anywhere. A larger and faster 12MP sensor. A new color filter with Deeper pixels, etc…”
And then my sweet and very innocent 16 yr. old daughter, who obviously picked up on the bolded words above, says to me…
“Mom, I feel like I’m listening to Fifty Shades of Phones.” 😉

I have no idea how we got on the subject of hair, but as we were all sitting around the dinner table, my sixteen-year-old daughter Brianna ran her hand through her hair and said, “Look, mom, my hair is as soft as butter.” I gave her a nod of agreement but then nearly spit out my food as my nine-year-old daughter Autumn replied, “Well, that’s just because your hair is so greasy!” Brianna and I both nearly peed our pants after hearing that one. We must have all laughed for at least ten minutes. Oh, the things that girl says! 😉
