God and Jesus

Taylor came home a few Sundays ago telling me that they were learning The Lord's Prayer and "The Postle's Creek" in Children's Church and wondered if I could help her practice it. We've been saying them together every evening, but today we made her a little book so she could practice reading it for herself. The back of the book was blank and she thought it needed some decoration, so she drew this picture of God (you can tell it's him because his shirt says "GOD"). On his left hand is a miniature Jesus (it's supposed to be his right hand but she drew it as if it were HER right hand...she hasn't figured out the whole mirror image thing), because "Jesus sits on the right hand of God the Father almighty," like it says in the Apostles Creed. So she's looking at the picture and says to me, "Mommy, God must be left handed." I hadn't seen the picture yet, and wasn't completely paying attention, so I absentmindedly asked her "Why's that?"

And she says..."Well, he can't DO anything with his RIGHT hand...Jesus is SITTING on it!"
