Josiah [incredulous]: You mean I behaved all day for nothin'? [muttering under his breath as he leaves the room] What a waste!
Jason [singing part of a song he made up that uses any of our children's names]: There once was a little girl named Grace.
Grace [singing to the same tune]: There once was a little girl named Daddy.
Robert [after picking up the library books that were being held for me]" They're all for people like you. [BIG goofy grin]
The titles? One was from the "Complete Idiot's" series, and the other was from the "Dummies Guide" series. Oh, hardy-har-har.
Beth Moore [quoting a friend of hers, during the introductory session of the "Psalms of Ascent" Bible study that began at our church tonight, talking about overcoming nervousness, self-consciousness, etc.]: You're not good enough to mess God up!
Remind yourself of that the next time you are nervous about doing or saying something. And, please, remind me, too.
~~~~~Grace [eating ice cream with Daddy]: Oh! My nose is cold! It needs a jacket!
Grace [excitedly opening the door for me as I came home from Bible study]: Hi, Mommy! We made cookies! And we saved you some! [She paused as she ran over to pick up the container on the the table, which she excitedly held out to me] HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!
No, it's not my birthday. ;) Did I mention she was excited?
