“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)

The Happy Face of My Little Truth Teller!
A few minutes ago she came over to me and said, "Mama, I have something to tell you, but you're gonna be mad!"
I said, "I don't know why I'd be mad."
She said, "BELIEVE ME, you're gonna be mad! I don't know if I should tell you. "
So, I said, "You should always tell me, even if you think I might get mad."
So she did.....
She left some raisins in the bedroom and ants got into them. We went and got them and fed them to the goats, extra protein and all. :)
And then she said, "You didn't get mad!"
No, I didn't. It isn't your fault we have CRAZY TEXAS ANTS!!!
But now you know it is best not to leave any kind of food in the bedroom. :)
She then said, "At first I was afraid to tell, and then I decided to tell anyway."
I asked, "Doesn't that make you feel so good inside to tell the truth!!" She said, "YES"!
Even though the ants ate your raisins and got all over, it still feels great to tell the truth. :)
And then, we went outside and told daddy too, and he gave huge hugs and squeezes and now we are ready to go to bed with a clear conscience. :)
