Quotes from a 9-year-old

Yesterday was my aunt's birthday, so I got to hang out with the family for dinner, cake, and games. Lauren, 9, drove with me back to their house and was telling me what she's been thinking about lately. For instance, she said she figured out what Jesus' favorite animal and numbers are.
  • Animal: Even at 9, Lauren realizes that Jesus and God (and the Holy Spirit) are one. Therefore, since Jesus is God, and "dog" is "god" spelled backward, Jesus' favorite animal must be a dog.
  • Numbers: Again, regarding the Trinity (we studied this in church last week; perhaps in Sunday School they go over the same things that we talk about in big church?), God the Father, Jesus the Son, and the Spirit our comforter are 1. So there are 3 of them, and there is 1 of us (His children as a unit). Therefore, Jesus favorite numbers must be 4 (3 + 1) and 13 (1 + 3).
She also said that she figured out Jesus' favorite color, but she couldn't remember what it was. I'm intrigued to find out what her 9-year-old mind comes up with!
