That's One Interpretation...

Little-known fact about me: When I clean the kitchen, I sing. The children often sing along.

Yesterday, as I washed the dishes, I was absentmindedly singing the hymn Did You Think to Pray? (words by Mary A. Pepper Kidder) The second verse goes

When your heart was filled with anger,
Did you think to pray?
Did you plead for grace, my brother,
That you might forgive another
Who had crossed your way?

If you know Jacob, you know where this is going. After the third line, he interrupted me:

"Grace, my BROTHER?? That's silly! Grace is my SISTER!!"
