I Had to Laugh

Last week when I got home from work one afternoon, I was met at the door by two very anxious children - both of whom had something they wanted to share with me. Now.
Elizabeth was ready with her item, but Joshua had to do some preparation.

So, Elizabeth went first.

She began to read a story to me. The descriptions were amazing, and the storyline captivating. As I stood there listening, I could not help but be very impressed with the exceptional writing. And, although I was sure of the answer, (because she was reading off of the computer) I asked, "Did you write that?"
With a great big smile on her face, Elizabeth said, "YES!"
I could tell Elizabeth was proud of her work.

Then Joshua came bounding in to tell me he was ready to show me his thing. And I followed him outside, to see his vinegar/baking soda bomb. I didn't record Joshua, but there are plenty of them on Youtube. Like this one:

Joshua was bursting with excitement over the explosion, seeming just as proud of his creation as Elizabeth was of hers. And I had to laugh, as I considered the completely opposite works which produced such similar joy in my children.
Boys and girls are, indeed, created differently. I think God was having fun when He was thinking us up! *grin*

Leah - When I think of the joy in my heart as I'm laughing about something my children are doing, it makes me smile to think that God might have a similar joy when He laughs about His prized creations. *grin*

Jodi - Such a joy, indeed!

When I see the differences between what my one and only little boy enjoys compared to his four sisters, I can't help but chuckle at God's sense of humor (and be thankful that God has given me the chance to enjoy that contrast!)
