Thankful #6

The "three girls" (that's what LK and E call us when the boys are at school and Daddy is at work) were on our way to the gym this morning when the following conversation spontaneously happened:

LK:  "God saved Daddy.  And God protects daddy."
E:  "Yeah, God protects us."
Me:  "Do you know how God saved Daddy?"
LK:  "No, how?"
Me:  "God sent Jesus to die on the cross to pay for our sins."
LK:  "Oh.  Jesus loves me."

Yes, he does baby.

Thankful #6:  My kids know that God protects, God saves and Jesus loves them. 
At the end of the day that is THE most important thing.

Thankful #5

Thankful #5:  The cooler weather has arrived!!

Yesterdays high was 70 degrees.
It was 58 and glorious when I got up to go and run.
So I opened the windows, turned off the ac and went to run.
When I got home, my kids were all complaining of the cold, so I told them to go outside on the trampoline in the sun.
They did.
With their winter coats on.
My neighbors were probably shaking their heads saying, "Those poor Texans are in for a long winter!"
I have a feeling they are right!
