Learning Bible Stories

As I've told you before, Ann Catherine goes to a church daycare. Each Wednesday, they learn a Bible story.

Today's story was about Jesus walking on the water. On the way home, I asked her to tell me about her Bible story.

"It was about Jesus," she answered.

"What did he do?" I asked.

"He walked on water!" she said excitedly.

"Wow! He did?" I asked.

"Yes, and I walk on water at Mimi's condo!" she said.

My parents have a condo at the beach, and Ann Catherine loves to go there. I guess she equates playing in the ocean, with Jesus walking on the water.

Not exactly the same, I know, but it's such a sweet example of how a child's mind works. There is such an innocence, and nothing seems impossible to them.

I got a kick out of it. I bet Jesus thinks it's pretty funny, too.

Dear Amy, Clay aiken did i song about this topic. Here are the words.

Mary, did you know
that your Baby Boy would one day walk on water?
Mary, did you know
that your Baby Boy would save our sons and daughters?
Did you know
that your Baby Boy has come to make you new?
This Child that you delivered will soon deliver you.

Mary, did you know
that your Baby Boy will give sight to a blind man?
Mary, did you know
that your Baby Boy will calm the storm with His hand?
Did you know
that your Baby Boy has walked where angels trod?
When you kiss your little Baby you kissed the face of God?

Mary did you know.. Ooo Ooo Ooo

The blind will see.
The deaf will hear.
The dead will live again.
The lame will leap.
The dumb will speak
The praises of The Lamb.

Mary, did you know
that your Baby Boy is Lord of all creation?
Mary, did you know
that your Baby Boy will one day rule the nations?
Did you know
that your Baby Boy is heaven's perfect Lamb?
The sleeping Child you're holding is the Great, I Am.
