sylas on jesus

i was in the store while sylas and his uncle daniel were in the car waiting for me. pointing to the crucifix hanging from the rear-view mirror, uncle daniel asks sylas to tell him about jesus. sylas furrows his brow and ponders for a moment...

"owies... hands... feet."
"oh, jesus has owies on his hands and feet?"
"bees"
"jesus has bees on his hands and feet?"
"bees, owies... jesus."
"what else do you know about jesus?"
sylas ponders the tiny image and then announces, "undies!"
"oh, jesus is wearing undies?"
he looks again and then corrects himself, "no... nappie."

In theological realms, the undies vs nappies debate is hotter topic than predestination and pre/postmillennialism combined

Poor guy to have experience with bees at such a young age.

yeah, he got stung at the age of 1 and hasn't forgotten the painful infliction of bees- in his mind, that is the brutal level of pain jesus went through on the cross...

love it felipe. Sim's starting to analyze things in a fun way too. He's re-vitalized my prayer life for sure. Every night he prays for everyone he knows (including y'all) and i just join right in.
