Twizzlers and Twinkle, Twinkle

Interesting Illustration of the Day:

In the course of some discussion with the kids today, I pointed out that sin can be very pleasurable for a period of time, but that the end result is always destructive. Evan interjected, "It is like eating an apple-flavored Twizzler. At first it tastes good, but pretty soon the taste turns nasty in your mouth."

What Will Our Relatives Do Next?

Apparently my nephew Conner will play his violin in public...for the right price! Recently he informed his parents that he wanted to dress in western wear and perform at an outdoor mall. Here is a picture that his dad emailed us:

He is an industrious young man! I would have figured he would earn more than that.:)

kids just have a way of putting things...don't think i would equate sin with twizzlers (well, except maybe gluttony)but what a great comparison.

I believe it is a sin to eat anything but Regular Strawberry flavor twizzlers- no wonder the apple ones start to taste bad... that is God's way of sayin' "that ain't right" of course, the black licorice ones are okay too...

Nay, verily, it is forbidden for you to eat, yeah even enjoy, black licorice Twizzlers. They are an abomination.
