Cleanliness…next to Godliness??

At breakfast this morning, the girls and I were looking at a beauty pageant winner on the back of the paper. Since they were commenting on how pretty the little girl was, I decided it was a good teachable moment for me to let them know how their daddy and I feel about beauty pageants. I ended it with the statement, “Beauty is not the most important thing in the world.”

Malin looked at me, shaking her finger for emphasis, and said, “No, God is the most important thing.”

And Avery, who has heard every late-night rant in our messy house, finalized the lesson with: “And cleaning up.”
