The voice of God

[Mark just told me about a conversation he had with Isaac tonight and I thought it was so funny I told him he had to post it. So here it is, in Mark's words:]


It seems Isaac has been particularly fond of seeing his daddy lately. As a matter of fact, he is getting up early -- really early -- just to see me before I go to work. Since tomorrow is Sunday and I will not be going to work and we hope to sleep in a little bit (past the 6 a.m. wakeup he gave us this morning), I decided to have a little talk with him before bed tonight.

Daddy: "You've been waking up early to see daddy, haven't you buddy?"

Isaac: "Yes."

Daddy: "Okay, well since tomorrow is Sunday, I'll be home all day, so I'll be here no matter how late you get up. So if you wake up and are still feeling sleepy, you can just go back to sleep."

Isaac: "But what if I see a little bit of sunshine in the window?"

Daddy: "Well, it does get light really early, so if you see the sun and you're still sleepy, just go back to sleep."

Isaac: "But what if I hear the voice of God, and He's telling me to get out of bed?"

Daddy: "Well, if you hear God's voice, you better do what He says."

Isaac: "But what if I hear a big scary voice telling me to get back in bed?"

Daddy: "That will be your daddy."


  1. That is so cute! I can totally relate to the early risers in my house! Fortunately for me, they usually want Gramma (who lives with us)!

  2. Hi Stacy :) That is adorable! Hope you guys are having a lovely Sunday. Love, Q

  3. So Funny!

    Yeah, we can relate. Audrey tends to get up early occasionally when she hears Josh downstairs at 3:30 am!! Thankfully, Josh can tell her to go back to bed and she'll crawl back and snooze for a few more hours.

  4. That has MAGAZINE written all over it. I rarely laugh out loud, but I truly actually did.

    Send it in. Quick.

  5. I am with Emily, I laughed out loud at that one!!
    How cute! You are so quick and witty, Mark!!


  6. Hilarious! Someone's been reading about Samuel. :)

  7. Too Funny! We've had a similar conversation in our house with our Isaac!

  8. Mark & Stacy --
    I'm laughing out loud as well! How cute is that?


  9. Too cute! Thanks for sharing!

    Great news about Addie being legally-free! Isn't the Lord wonderful in bringing Addie to you?!

  10. If I were Mark, I probably would have wet my pants laughing. That is a classic for sure.
