What are my options again? 

Emily and I had a little father/daughter time tonight. We went to Sonic (her choice) and PetSmart (her dog needs another 50lb bag of food). We started the ride by listening to her iPod. We each got one earbud. It was fun listening and commenting on the songs. Some songs were added because I liked the song. Others were added because Aunt Shannon liked the songs. So on and so forth. We stopped listening while we ate dinner in the car. Then, Emily asked a question. "Daddy, if someone breaks into the house would we get a stepmom... very long pause ...... or would we call the police and ask them to find her?"

At least she gave me 2 options. I assured her that we live in a safe neighborhood and that the chances are very slim that anyone would break into our home. Jasper is a Weimerainer. But yes, we would call the police and ask them to find her.

Update for Emily's Song List 

Updated song list for Emily's iPod.

Previous post here.

I am looking at the suggestions. More came in through personal email. Several overlapped on Elvis. I am looking for some of his hymn and gospel work. Yes, also the foundational music. No child left behind... no child should be unaware of the significance of the king's Hound Dog, Love Me Tender, and of course Jailhouse Rock.

I have added 3 songs. Rob Base & DJ E-Z Rock It Takes Two, King Harvest's Dancing in the Moonlight, and Exile's Kiss You All Over.

The 3 most important words 

Ask yourself - what are the 3 most important words? In the English language? You have ever heard? That should have been said? That were left out?

Focus on the answer you have in mind.

My Sunday School class did not meet this morning. As we drove home from church, Julie and I asked Emily what she talked about in Sunday School this morning. She resisted the first few probing questions from Julie. Then, with a little more force in the conversation, I demanded that she answer the question. This is her actual verbatim response:

"Treat people the way you want."

Now, for those of you who are not as familiar with the Bible passage it is (Luke 6:31 - Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.). "To be treated" are important words. Leave those 3 words off the statement and it takes on a whole new meaning. Emily took offense when Julie and I started laughing. We teased her for a moment. She then stated the complete quote "Treat people the way you want to be treated."

"To be treated" are important words. What were your thoughts on the 3 most important words?
