Mark 7:31-35

Then he left the region of Tyre, went through Sidon back to Galilee Lake and over to the district of the Ten Towns. Some people brought a man who could neither hear nor speak and asked Jesus to lay a healing hand on him. He took the man off by himself, put his fingers in the man's ears and some spit on the man's tongue. Then Jesus looked up in prayer, groaned mightily, and commanded, "Ephphatha!—Open up!" And it happened. The man's hearing was clear and his speech plain—just like that.

That is what we heard in church today. Chicka was listening intently. "Groaned?" a little louder now "Jesus groaned?" a little louder now "mama!!!!! Jesus GROANED!" IBoy and his visiting friend were looking straight ahead and trying not to laugh out loud. Yes, my sweetness, Jesus groaned. Now if you think you might still want that donut at social hour, shhhhhhhh!

I love it when children in worship service are clearly learning God's Word, even if they don't quite grasp the "social graces" of the adult world :) Their innocence has got to make the Lord smile.

Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of heaven.
