What an AWESOME day.

Today has been great. We made a trip to see our son/brother/dog Chief at the trainers house AKA Chief's other parents, Billy and Nicole's. The girls enjoyed playing outside and holding the new puppies-Chief's nieces and nephews.

Awesome-1. inspiring awe: an awesome sight
2. showing or characterized by awe

Our big girl asked Jesus Christ into her heart tonight, AWESOME!

How ironic or not below is our Kid's Devotion from tonight:

Take your medicine 2 Corinthians 7:8-13
Peter groaned. "It makes me so mad to be feeling sick on Saturday!"
Mom smiled sympathetically. "I know, but take these pills-they should bring down your fever," she said. While she adjusted the drapes, Peter dropped the pills into the wastebasket beside his bed.
Later, Mom came in with the phone. "Justin wants to talk to you," she said.
When Mom returned to the room later that afternoon, she found Peter tossing and turning from the fever. "Justin's folks are getting a divorce," Peter said wearily. "He's pretty upset, Mom, and I don't know how to help him."
Mom sat down on the edge of the bed. "I'm so sorry, Peter."
"Why doesn't God do something about it?" asked Peter. "He could make them love each other. In fact, God could stop all the fighting in the whole world. Why doesn't he?"
Mom signed and shook her head sadly. "I know he could, but..." She stopped as she stared at the wastepaper basket. "Your pills!" she exclaimed. "No wonder your fever is going up! You haven't been taking your medicine!"
"I don't like it," Peter whined. "I hate swallowing pills!"
"You don't like being sick," said Mom, "and you know how to get well-but you refuse to take your medicine." She signed, then continued. "In a sense, the world is sick, too, and God has provided a remedy. If people would follow his instructions, there wouldn't be family fights or divorce. There wouldn't be any war. But people have chosen to ignore God's laws. They have thrown the 'medicine' in the trash, so to speak." She stood up. "God doesn't force anyone to take the cures he offers, but I do. I'm going to get you a couple more pills, and this time you are going to take them, like it or not!"
"Serve only the Lord your God and fear him alone. Obey his commands, listen to his voice, and cling to him." Deuteronomy 13:4
PrAiSe GoD! PrAiSe GoD! PrAiSe GoD!
