Jacob's Version

I filled in for my friend Tricia last night as the story teller for Cubbies. Jacob was so excited that I was doing that (and so was Caleb, even though he is in Sparks).

On the way home from AWANA, Caleb asked me about the story, so I told it to him. (It's from Matthew 8, when Jesus calms the storm on the Sea of Galilee.) When I finished telling Caleb, Jacob said, "When I grow up, I'm going to work in Cubbies and tell the stories!"

I asked him if he was going to do that like I did, but he said, "No. My story will be different."

"How?" I asked.

"People will drown." Then he added, "And there will be sharks and they'll eat people, too!"

Caleb scolded him and said that was a true story and he can't just change it any way he wants.

Too funny! I guess the fact that Jesus instantly calmed a storm isn't dramatic enough for a 5-year-old.
