Yesterday evening, following Vespers, my wife was standing outside of Church with Andrew, our youngest. When the following occured:
Silouan must have asked Andrew a question, to which Andrew answered with a “no.”
Silouan asked him, “What is the opposite of ‘No’?”
To which Andrew responded, “Because.”
Never try to mentally ‘mix it up’ with a three year old.
and at no additional charge
from my ‘observational questions’ mental-file:
Why is it when we see a cat roaming free we think nothing of it; other than we wish someone would control their cat because it might make a mess in our flowerbeds. But when we see a dog running loose we assume it is a lost dog, and maybe even feel sorry for it.
Do we feel sorry for the dogs because we secretly think that dogs might not be able to make it on their own?
Or do we just fear that roaming dogs might attack us?
