“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)

FRIDAY NIGHT SLUMBER PARTY
Anna was using a flash light to finish reading her book.
Daddy is already zonked out! :)
We have had this tradition for many years, (like 21), of having a slumber party on Friday nights all together. Years ago, it was the boys, and us, all falling asleep in the den. They had sleeping bags. But this ole' body can no longer sleep on a floor. So, with the girlies, we moved it to our bedroom. We have two cots, and the floor. We are looking for another cot to go on sale, and then, we will have 3 for everybody.... so far, somebody has to stay on the floor. Today, it is Erika's turn.
It was actually Sarah's turn, but Erika told Sarah to sleep on the cot again, and she'd take the floor. She is such a sweetie.
Sarah took advantage of the offer. :)
We love our Friday night Rituals. We go to sleep to the Movie, "The Secret of Roan Inish"... mainly, because we love the music so much. The story is fun, but the music is great! :)
What are your Friday Night Rituals?
