Thanks Connor

I've been so crazy busy that I haven't had time to blog but I wanted to share this with you. Last week Connor and Caleb attended Bible Camp in the evenings. On Thursday Stacy and Ryan went to the rodeo so I kept the little ones. Kenzi and I went to pick the boys up and bring them home . They were staying the night with me. So we got our jammies on (actually we all wore Jay's T-shirts) and sat in the chair with our sippy cups of milk and blankets. We were saying our prayers. They said "Our Father" with me and asked God to take care of Pa. Then we sat there quietly for a minute and Connor said " Corinthians 16 13." I looked at him and he smiled cuz he remembered hearing it at camp. I thought that was so cute since he isn't even 4 years old. So in the morning when I got up, I looked it up in the Bible. It says, "Be on your guard: stand firm in the faith: be men of courage, be strong." When I went back up stairs to see them sleeping in my bed I saw his wrist band. It said "Be Strong." So, that is what I will do. I will be strong. Thank you Connor.

Isn't it amazing how God can speak to us through a child! Wow, that is totally awesome. Your grandkids really do rock. I pray that the Lord will continue to give you strength.

Be blessed,

Sharon

I can just picture Connors face as he said that to you, very serious yet beaming cause he was proud of himself! And he should be!! They are soo adorable.
Let's pray for an indian summer. I love football under the lights when it's warm outside!
