I just know when they are lying.
They can have all the "evidence in their favor" but I have this feeling, way deep down that it's all a boldfaced lie and all the evidence is manufactured.
I would never want to accuse them of lying when they are telling the truth, but there are a few tricks to ascertaining the truth and when those fail me, time will eventually tell. Thankfully, these kiddos, when directly confronted usually come clean, but if not their eyes give them away.
I tell them that God helps me to know. And I believe that.
Put away lying, speak every man truth. Eph.4:25
Can you guess what the issue at our house is this morning? LOL!
