Prayer Quote

“I pray because I can't help myself. I pray because I'm helpless. I pray because the need flows out of me all the time- waking and sleeping. It doesn't change God- it changes me.”
― C. S. Lewis


I believe in the sun even when it's not shining. I believe in love even when I don't feel it. And I believe in God even when He is silent. (quote found on the wall of a concentration camp)

Pineapple Juice, Tents and Little Girls

We had such a fun day. After the park I suggested the girls get their tent out and set it up, then they could read and relax in their tent.

They had set up a miniature "Enterprise City" all around the house, each selling their wares to each other for various prices, and I figured it would be a good idea to get them back out into the sun.

Well, I noticed the tent went up, and then I noticed it went right back down. Hmmmm.
I asked the girls, "Why did you take the tent down?"

One of them said, "Somebody spilled Pineapple Juice in the tent". WHAT?

So I see this 1/2 gallon size can of Pineapple Juice laying on the lawn, empty.
I asked about the tent again, and a tearful Anna came up and said, "Mommy, I spilled the Pineapple Juice in the tent so we had to put it away."

Uh, did you clean the tent? No, we just put it away.

With that, I decided they should clean it, and I should go to the store.

I left them with daddy for a while and went to Wally World.

When I came back, there was the cutest note waiting for me.
They each wrote a little part of it and said how much they loved me.
Then, they said they had cleaned the kitchen, dishes, and living room. It was dark when I walked in. I heard these little giggles coming from the living room and then they all popped up from the couch and yelled SURPRISE! :)

I was so happy that Anna had told the truth, and happy that they had noticed that Mommy/Gramma needed some help AND they really wanted to do something nice for me.

I couldn't ask for sweeter kids. :)
