giving colors

Ila opened her Bible reader to color the picture from the story of Elijah and the prophets of baal today...

I: Mom! There's a dead bull in the fire!
Q: Yes, sweetie, it was the sacrifice.
I: YUCK!
Q: I agree, it's very sad.
I: Really, Mom! You would think they wouldn't put a poor dead animal
right in a first grader's Bible to color. How am I supposed to be glad to
do this work when I have to color that bull?
Q: (laughing now) Just color the fire, sweetie.
I: I know! I'll make that fire beautiful reds and oranges and yellows and
give the poor bull some colors, and I will remember how God smacked
those silly prophets.

All we need is a bright palette and a little perspective, yes? ♥
