All the books that would be written

One of our boys just finished reading the book of John yesterday and he was telling me how cool he thinks John 21:25 is:

"And there are also many other things that Jesus did, which if they were written one by one,
I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that would be written."

So, we just sat there a minute trying to comprehend how many books the world CAN contain
and what that verse means.

I love that verse too.
I told him that I gave it my own paraphrase and it's written in his baby book, which surprised him.

It says:

"Zachary did many other cute things as well.
If every one of them were written down,
I suppose that even the whole world would not have room
for the books that would be written."

He smiled....
And I think, he thought that was just a little weird.
But that's a mom for you! : )
Wasn't he cute?!
He still is!!!

Wow...I love seeing those pictures side-by-side!
I've always been fascinated by those verses too. I don't think we can really understand the reality of it until we get to heaven!

How sweet!! You wrote that verse about him and he pondered what that meant in it's biblical context, as an older child!! That is so ironic and very cool!! I love the baby pic too!!

Someday when his wife reads his baby book she will think that is priceless.
