Apparently Ryan has been memorizing part of the 23rd Psalm at preschool. (Either that or it’s been dropped supernaturally into his brain, because I know he hasn’t learned it at home or at church yet.) I overheard him yesterday reciting it to himself as he was playing. He was saying it perfectly as I was eavesdropping, but he got a little bit camera shy when I made the video!
As I watch this again, I wonder if he knows that “Yea” has a different meaning than “Yay!”? In a four year olds world, “yay” generally means, “Yay, we get ice cream!” or “Yay! I don’t have to take a nap!” I wonder if in his little mind he’s wondering, “Why should I be so thrilled to be walking through the valley of the shadow of death?”
