Amen to THAT?

One of my favorite things to do as a mother is to quietly observe the way Abel and Amariah interact with each other.  Just a moment ago I was listening to them having a tea party.  (Actually, according to Abel, they were having Carrot Strawberry Lettuce Soup with broccoli in it.  Yummy….)  After getting the table all set, Abel asked Amariah if she wanted to pray.  She said, “No, you pray,” and so he did.  “Dear Jesus, thank you for this food.  Amen.”  A moment later I heard him praying again.  “Our Father, please help Daddy to get home.  Amen.”  This prayer was immediately echoed by Amariah:  “Dear Jesus, Daddy home ‘night.  Amen.”  And another moment later came one final prayer from Abel:  “Dear Jesus, help Mommy’s tummy get smaller.  Amen.”

  4. I could so see my children praying something like that! This poor mommy looks perpetually pregnant due to a severe diastasis of the stomach muscles.
    You have a lovely family!
