In this life we can not always do great things. But we can do small things with great love.." :) Mother Teresa

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)

Funnies for April

I THOUGHT we had gotten through April Fools without a hitch....And then, I went to get in bed. I hopped right back out. Something was seriously wrong with the mattress! Couldn't see anything and got back in again. OUCH, something weird! I investigated further and to the delight of two giggling girls, I pulled a prosthetic LEG from underneath the mattress! LOL
Thanks Sarah and Alli. :)

Tonight during Family devotions, we were reading out loud the accounts of the Resurrection in each of the 4 gospels.
Somebody mispronounced a few names:
Mary Magdalene was read "Mary Magical" and Salome, was read "Salami!"  LOL
 Anna overheard Alli saying to Sarah, "Let's pretend we are sisters, not real sisters, but adopted sisters, and that we are really close and love each other and everything...."

Anna said, "what is pretend about that?" LOL
I thought I was so talented at the gas pump.  2 x's in a row it shut off right at the 75.00 even mark. We always strive for that .00.....  and the last two times I didn't even have to try!  I called Mike to tell him of my gas pump talent and I was informed that the pump shuts off automatically at 75.00.  I just never knew that because gas has never been so expensive! Not sure if that is funny or not! :) 
Sarah always makes the morning coffee and then comes in to wake us up.  First she comes to me and we have a quiet time for a few minutes and talk about our dreams... then she goes over to daddy's side. He ALWAYS pretends to be asleep and she taps him on the shoulder. And then in "What about Bob" form, she jumps on him and says "Cocka-doodle-doo!"..... and he wakes up. :) 
This a.m. daddy said, "I'll cherish these moments for the rest of my natural life!" 
Sarah replied in a droll little tone, "And what do you think is so natural about it?"

We attended a Wylie Good Friday service at the High School. Dr. Tony Evans was the keynote speaker.
He often speaks truth in the midst of humor. 
I think Sarah missed the truth.
I asked the girls,  "What did you learn tonight?"
Sarah repeated:  "If you marry the wrong person, you put your wedding ring on the wrong finger!"

I was trying to create a form to have notarized.  Erika suggested I use "Microscopic Word". :)
Alli asked, "What does Rick Mommy look like?"
Do you mean Mitt Romney?
Yea. :)

I'm so glad I got away without any real pranks. :D Except for the one I posted on my blog and then got a bunch of emails from readers, who didn't read the last sentence.
