Gosh is happy?

This morning Zeze was informing me of some rules that the boys are learning. He said that we don't say, "Oh my G*d" like his friends, but we can say, "Oh my gosh." I told him he was doing a good job remembering and decided to jump on this teaching moment by adding that it makes God very sad when we say His name in an angry way. Zeze said, "I know...and it makes Gosh very happy when we say 'oh my gosh'. *sigh*

Maybe I should just teach him a cuss phrase that isn't confusing, like 'oh bloody h*ll'. It's not taking the Lord's name in vain and it's not creating another god named Gosh. :)

I can't stop laughing about this one.........

Zeze is such a smart, cute little boy.

Never in my wildest imagination could I have come up with a deity named "Gosh".

Zeze is way smarter than me ... especially about theology. Maybe he can write my seminary capstone paper for me and be grilled by Prof. Wayne Hansen.

He's probably right, you usually smile when you say "Oh my Gosh" and Gosh would like that DAD

I used your story and Zeze's comments as an intro to my sermon last Sunday. Everyone chuckled and loved your story. And I left out the part about teaching Zeze a swear :-) Didn't think they'd catch the humor of it all.

Post more stories.... please.
