Peyton Story #1

Peyton was about five years old when this story occurred. He and I were walking out of our church; Peyton was several steps ahead of me. There was a boy outside the church holding the door so Peyton couldn't open it. Peyton said, "When I get outside, I am going to get him." Trying to use this situation to teach him something, I said, no Peyton we treat others the way we want to be treated.

Peyton said, He is treating me the way he wants to be treated, I am going to get him!!

I then had to explain it was not our job to bring about other peoples' harvests, no matter how deserving we thought they were.

Love that kid. I always told him, "you are my little red haired boy I love so much."

I am smiling :-)

Hahaha! That's funny!
When me and my sisters were little my mom would tell us "The Golden Rule" - "Do unto others as you would have others do unto you" Well, we were fighting once and my mom said something about that rule and we said "mom, we are following the golden rule, do unto others as they have done unto you"!!
