another funny Gracie story:
We were listening to our Steve Green's Hide 'Em In Your Heart cd and one of the songs talks about every creature praising God. She asked why it said 'creature.' I explained that it means God made everyone and we should all praise God. She said something like, "Yeah, but creature means animals." I'm thinking, "Yes, and I know that, but I'm not sure how to explain this because I'm not exactly sure what it means myself!" I stumbled through some sort of explanation about how God made everyone and everything and we should all be grateful and thankful and how animals don't really understand what that means. She said something like, "Well, if you had a parrot, you could like read it a Bible story. You could just say one word and then it could repeat it."
My daughter. The evangelist for animals. I wonder what she'll do when the parrot responds to the call for baptism?!?!
