Total Misunderstanding

The funniest thing happened today.
Doodle and I were sitting in Sacrament Meeting as the Bishop was announcing the speakers for the meeting.
Here's what he said:
"After we hear from Sister Dickson we will have a rest hymn."
I did not catch the page number of the hymn or the title of the sweet cadences to be sung later in the meeting.
Before he had a chance to announce the hymn Doodle turned to me with wide eyes, a look of complete shock and horror on her face.
"Why are they going to arrest him?"
It took me a minute to understand why she though someone was being arrested.
Then I just laughed.
I tried to explain that 'a rest hymn' was a song sung in between the speakers, to give our minds and ears a break from all that listening.
I think she understood after my feeble explanation.
I am just happy that she is trying to listen in church!

I had a similar thing tonight. I was reading Alma 3 and my son asked me why it rains so much? Huh? I reread the last few verses and realized I kept reading about the reign of the judges.

Cute! When we went to the MTC to see off Grandpa and Grandma a few years ago my son wanted to know if they were really going to a big empty sea!
