Friends, Fun, and lots of Laughter!!!

God has so blessed us in our lives. No matter where he lands us whether it be for a short season or for a long time he always blesses us with wonderful people. I truly believe that God created us to be in relationship with others continually and I love to be able to watch that happen in my children. What a fun weekend!! Matthew (the one in the middle) was blessed this weekend by having some of his friends over to play and sleepover. This is Nicodemus and Barouk. They are two very sweet little boys. As you can see all three of them went through costumes, constantly switching roles and laughing all the way. I do not even think yoda could keep up with all three of these boys. They all enjoyed playing star wars, and they had lightsaber battles and then at one point I saw the dinosaurs out and then of course their was the clammer of little feet all over the house. Up and then down and then repeat!!! One of the cutiest moments was when Nicodemus had bumped his head on our little table in the kitchen and he started to cry a little like it hurt and I told him to let me look at it and he came over and told me that he was scared because it hit his lucky brain parts!!! I have never heard that before!! I had him count to ten and then I kissed him on the head. He turned and looked at me and said " Oh my lucky brain part doesn't hurt anymore!!"
Bed time of course had some comical value of it own. As we tucked them all in for the night we told them that they could watch some of Planet 51 to help them wind down. As we were doing this my son Matthew looks over at Kevin and I and says " It feels so good to have my friends with me spending the night." Well of course my heart just melted for that and it made me want to have his friends over all of the time. Then they all wanted to pray. As each of them prayed they really lifted up their little hearts to God and then when Nicodemus was finishing his prayer, Kevin and I could not help but laugh. He wanted to thank God for Kevin and I letting him stay at our home but he could not remember Kevin's name. It went something like this... " Lord in heaven I thank you for Mr. and Mrs. Crystal " Oh it was so funny. Thank You Lord for the hearts of these 5 and 6 yr old boys that all three of them will grow to live their lives for you God. Thanks for reading!!!!

Rainy Day Monday!!!

It has been raining here all day in Eastern Tn. It has made me some what want to just read and nap but it is much needed here in this area. Feels like Fall!! Today has been an interesting day, my daughter who is twelve blessed me today with just sitting and sharing her heart with me. She expressed to me that she is realizing that as you grow and get older life gets harder and responsibility comes into play. She really is not fond of this and would like to go back to being about 8 yrs old. She is struggling with a few things and so this was weighing on her heavily. Praise God though because she came to me and talked with me about it and then cried in my arms. I am so blessed that she felt comfortable enough to talk with me. I believe that this is how God wants us to be with our children and how he wants them to be with us. There are so many teenage girls out there lost and looking for directions, we have to pray that they " will turn their hearts to their fathers and mothers &qu…
