Parable of the Good...Coward?

We've started a new tradition in the Dominikovich household of family Bible stories on Sunday nights. Paul decided that in order to help the children to concentrate, each night one of them will be given the task of illustrating the story as we go. It's the teacher in him. Little did he know we would be creating for ourselves a little treasure trove of memories. The pictures themselves are fantastic and each week we look forward to seeing another of their creations.

Tonight was Violet's turn and the story was from the Parable of the Good Shepherd. She diligently went about drawing and colouring 100 sheep...until she got to about three and decided one more would do. When it became clear that the girls didn't understand what a shepherd was, Paul tried to put it into context: "You know our friend Dave, who looks after cows? Well, he's not a shepherd but if he looked after sheep he would be." Madeline, our go-to girl for great one-liners, thoughtfully pondered this concept for half a second and then said, "So, he's a COWherd?"

I hope you enjoyed that as much as we did!
