This week is Vacation Bible School at my church. We have about 70 - 75 children and more or less 40 adults and teens making all this work.

So, I am dressed up as Moses, and I have a staff, etc. They come for a lesson every day to my "tent."

Yesterday I finished with the lesson and asked if the children had any questions. A girl raised her hand and asked...

Girl: "Hey Moses! Why does it smell like smoking when I stand next to you?"

Me: "Maybe it was the burning bush?"

Girl: "I did not think about the burning bush."

Ah! Now we know what the burning bush was.........a tobacco plant! ;) 
Now was it Virgina or Burley?


Reminds me of Art Linkleter's "Kids say the funniest things"  ;)

The burning leaves in my car as I drove into work would have been Sugar Barrel today.

Moses was known for his rapier-like wit! I have fond memories of VSB, your kids will as well.
