The bedtime routine with our three boys usually culminates with a story from the Jesus Storybook Bible. Well, several weeks ago, when it came time to choosing the Bible story for the night, our youngest son, Owen, decided to go right back to the beginning of his Bible and choose the creation story.

And to my surprise my middle son Brennan answered, "Yes Mom, there is something God can’t do!'"
