God Bless US with Stop Signs Today

Today my husband had a game in Dallas so I stayed home to clean. After lunch the sun came out and I was ready to go shopping, so I called my MIL and had her come and watch the baby so I could take my 4 year old Miss Priss with me and we could spend the day together. We went to a craft show nearby where a friend had a booth selling hairbows and little girls outfits. Of course I had to get some bows made! Tomorrow is our Easter Egg hunt at Church so her dress needed a bow. While we were there, her friend monogrammed it for us! It is precious! We left there and decided to go look at bedroom furniture. She is sleeping in her own bed now and she has the mattess and box springs on the floor! The child needs a bedroom suit! We finally found some and ordered it. Then we decided to get home!

On the way home she decided she wanted to listen to Praise and Worship music by Travis Cottrell! This was unusual because she is usually watching Barbie on the TV! But I put in the CD and she started to sing. The words were nothing like what was on the music--she was making up her on songs about how God and Jesus were watching over us! It was so precious! Then she said where is God, of course, I answered he is in Heaven and he is looking down on us right now! Then, I told her lets name things that God has Blessed us with today--she gave me a funny look, so I started it off: He gave us today with each other, He allowed daddy a safe trip to Dallas, He Blessed us with Grandma to watch the baby while we could shop........ and then she started YEP and HE gave US Stop signs!!!! I wanted to laugh so bad! It was so cute and I almost teared up! She was so serious and sincere and let me tell you she was thankful for that stop sign! Thank you God for our stop signs!!!

Krista, that is so cute! Out of the mouth of babes! Sometimes we don't pay attention to God's stop signs and get ourselves in a whole 'lotta trouble, don't we?! I love the world through a child's eyes!

How cute, it's amazing the things our kids will say. Sometimes I get so caught up in my life that I forget to stop and savor everything around me the way children.

Ooohhhhh! How cute! It is so sweet what they think about. I think I learn way more from my kiddos than they learn from me. A stop sign IS a very good thing to be thankful for! I wanted to ask, how is the surviving little twin doing. I pray for those poor dear parents....I know their hearts hurt even as they try to care for the other. My thoughts are with them.

This is too funny! I just read mayhem and miracles blog, was going to leave a comment and then saw that you left a comment regarding my cousin Jaymie and her twins. I also saw that you too are praying for Ethan who I was sent the link via Robyn. So I just know that we must run in the same circles or something. This blogland is such a small world. So come by my blog and see if we know each other. And thank you for praying for my family-it means the world to them and to all of us.

So Krista, I have to ask, how do you know Jaymie? I am going to be on the floor if I hear you found them through blogland and not IRL. Blessed Assurances is right - how God seems to have just put us all together to pray for this precious family!
