Which did God hear?

WHICH DID GOD HEAR?
A man sat down to supper with his family, saying grace, thanking God
for the food, for the hands which prepared it, and for the source of
all life. But during the meal he complained about the freshness of
the bread, the bitterness of the coffee and the sharpness of the
cheese. His young daughter questioned him, "Dad, do you think God
heard the grace today?" He answered confidently, "Of course."

Then she asked, "And do you think God heard what you said about the
coffee, the cheese, and the bread?" Not so confidently, he answered,
"Why, yes, I believe so." The little girl concluded, "Then which do
you think God believed, Dad?"

The man was suddenly aware that his mealtime prayer had become a
rite, thoughtless habit rather than an attentive and honest
conversation with God. By not concentrating on that important
conversation, he had left the door open to let hypocrisy sneak in.

Like Father, like son

John was vacuuming his truck out, and John Luke told him he needed to vacuum his truck out too. So he pulled his Gator and monster truck over, and grabbed the shopvac and cleaned up his trucks!

Thankfully, she came here with absolutely no trouble and I actually enjoyed her birth! {If I could have them all like her, I might would have 10~} I can remember it like it was yesterday, and it literally feels like it was yesterday! What a blessing she has been! We love you sister girl!

Early Bird

Does anyone else have children that like love to wake up...EARLY?!?! I have one early bird that has been this way since he got here, and when he wakes up, the house goes from being quite to sounding like a huge tornado has landed right in the middle of us all. Therefore his little sister, that would probably sleep in a little longer, has NO choice but to Wake up! He will have it no other way!!! So guess what? WE get up around here!!! Like it or not!
Does the early bird really get the worm? Or is he just sleepy?

She seems to take it pretty well. Me on the other hand...I'm still trying! I truly want to be a morning person, but I just can't get there!

"Early to bed, early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy, and wise!" We should know if that is true within the next 20 years!

And y'all know me, I've been listening to Chuck again {Chuck Swindoll; my favorite!}

"To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything, and your heart will certainly be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact, you must give your heart to no one, not even to an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements; lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket- safe, dark, motionless, airless--it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable. The only place outside heaven where you can be perfectly safe from all the dangers of love, is Hell!"
C.S. Lewis
