"...Forget to pray and you'll SHREK????"

 

Read your Bible pray every day and you'll grow... grow... grow!

BUT

... forget to pray and you'll SHRINK???!!!

Sitting at a table having a snack before bed, Josie leans over to me and says...

"Ma'am (*that's a whole other story), I'm goin' pray every day for you, 'cause I don't want you to shrek."

"I'm so glad that you're going to pray for me, but WHY did you say you're going to pray for me?"

"I have to pray for you every day, 'cause I don't want you to shrek. You know... if you don't pray every day you'll shrek and I don't want you to shrek 'cause I love you."

"Ohhhh... you mean shrink?!"

"Yes, shrek."

(Jerry) "No. YOU won't shrink, you're RESTAURANT WITH GOD will shrink."

"Honey, I think you mean your relationship with God."

"Yeah, its your relationship with God that shrinks... NOT you."

(Josie) "Well, I'm going keep praying for you everyday so you won't shrek like we sang in nursery tonight."

"Thanks, darlin', Momma's need prayer too."


*note: for some strange reason today Josie has decided to call me Ma'am, which I do not like! I've explained to her several times that she should only say "ma'am" when she is answering respectfully to a command or if talking to a lady when she's not sure of the name. Yet, she says that she likes Ma'am better than Momma. Hopefully this isn't going to be like when she was two and decided she wanted to call Daddy, Bob. (Daddy's name is Brian Keith and he answers to Keith NOT Bob!) That lasted quite some time.

Children say the cutest things.
Enjoy you sharing their sayings with us.
Deb told me you were in Canada and she got to meet you. I was anxious to hear about it but she is under the weather. Wish you were down in south Louisiana and stop by our church. We have a couple on deputation that are going to the Philippines. They plan to leave by July. It is our Pastor's daughter and her husband and two children. Joshua and Amber Adams. We have a lot of missionaries pass by. We support 117. Our mission conference is next month.

Hi,
Thanks for stopping by Canadian Chronicles and leaving a comment. It is always nice to meet others that are serving the Lord in Canada! We are out at the base of the Rockies in Hinton, AB. It's a wonderful place to be.... right in the center of His will!

That is so cute, and I loved your little girls coulottes. My five year old and I may have to tackle some of those:)
