this exchange happened just before bedtime tonight.
lily: mom, i need to ask God for a big favor.
mom: what’s that?
lily: i’m going to ask him to teach all of the other countries to speak our language. because if they don’t know our language, then they don’t know God. i mean, they have to know our language like in Michigan and in our country. because if not, they’re just like “blabbity blah blah blah”, and it doesn’t even make any sense! they can’t know God if they don’t know our language!
um … i think i need to do a bit more explaining about foreign countries and mission work to sweet lil.
