My sweet pretty little daughter Mabel? This was one of her doodles during church today:
The caption says, “I think I’m sorry for eating your cookies now.”
(Mabel also likes to draw pretty girls and kittens, if you were wondering.)
Note: Although Dean says “It’s your blog,” he also says he wouldn’t put this on a blog, and thinks it would be seen as sacrilegious. In case you’re one who takes it that way: I think Mabel was just experimenting with the idea of someone doling out an extreme punishment for a trivial offense. And since Jesus was not only perfectly innocent but also the Savior of the world, His crucifixion was even more unwarranted than that of a cookie thief — and I do think Mabel understands that.
Update: Mabel says “It’s not exactly that, it’s just because I drew it when we were in church and that’s practically all I could think about, but after I drew it I realized people might think I was making fun of the crucifixion, so I kind of wish you hadn’t put this on your blog, because people are going to think I’m so bad.”
(Obviously, I don’t think she’s bad. And she says that with this explanation, she’s okay with my leaving it here.)
