At bedtime this evening Carver asked me to read him Psalm 100. They have been learning those verses at church and he enjoys saying it as I read. Well, Psalm 100 turned into Psalm 101 and then stories from Matthew, Mark and Luke. He is a born staller and really how can you tell a kid that you refuse to read any more Bible stories! Anyway, as I read to him 'the disciples' continued to be mentioned. I tried to think of a creative way for a 4 year old to understand just who these men were and their importance to Jesus. I began with something like 'they were very important helpers.' Without missing a beat Carver replied, "Right! Just like the elves!" I guess so! Does anyone else want to tackle the apostles?!
