"…And she smiles at the future." ~Proverbs 31:25

Even the spills

We were sitting around the table, ready to eat supper. As usual, our three-year-old daughter wanted to lead the prayer, and as usual, we couldn’t say no. She squeezed her eyes shut tightly, we all bowed our heads, and she began…

Dear God,

Thank you for the drink…

…the drink I keep spilling…

It was true. She had already spilled her drink two or three times before we’d even made it to the pre-meal prayer, and it had been frustrating. But then she prayed that prayer…and it immediately made me think—Thank you, Remi!—of a couple of different verses, both of which I evidently needed to be reminded:

“Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials…”        (James 1:2)

“In everything give thanks; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”  (I Thessalonians 5:18)

I am thankful for my walking, talking, Scripture illustration…

…and I’m so grateful for her earnest prayer of thanksgiving—another much-needed reminder to be thankful in all situations.

Are you thankful?

Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Rose Lynn’s daughter Kaeleigh said the evening prayer and something about being sorry for the goldfish. Dinner was postponed while Rosie ran upstairs to check and sure enough Kaeleigh had squeezed toothpaste worms all inside the goldfish bowl and the poor little fish was floating on top!
