ALL MOMS KNOW THIS STUFF


One mom was out walking with her 4-year-old daughter when her girl picked up something from the ground and started to put it in her mouth. The mother tells what happens in her own words:


"I took the item away from her and I asked her not to do that." My daughter quickly asked, "Why?" "Because it's been lying outside, you don't know where it's been, it's dirty and probably has germs," I replied.


At this point, my daughter looked at me with total admiration and asked, "Wow! How do you know all this stuff?"


I thought quickly and said, "All moms know this stuff. It's on the Mommy Test. You have to know it, or they don't let you be a Mommy."


We walked along in silence for 2 or 3 minutes, as she pondered this new information. "Oh...I get it!" she beamed, "So if you don't pass the test you have to be the daddy?"


I smiled and replied, "Exactly."


(From a sermon by Mark Opperman, Mothers: Guardians of the Heart, 6/19/2012)
