Take Time To Pray

Our family was having a busy morning. Nick was trying to get his bag packed for the weekend before leaving for work, Caleb had just gotten up and had to quickly eat his breakfast, Abby had just finished getting dressed and I was getting my stuff together to clean a house. We all needed to be out of the house at a certain time and we were coming close to failing.

In the midst of everything, Abby stopped in the middle of the living room and said, "Wait! I need to stop for a minute and pray."

While we watched in amazement, she stood there quietly, closed her eyes and bowed head. We did not hear everything she said, but there was something about, "Please give us a safe trip to Pennsylvania..." When she finished, she looked up and finished getting ready.

Some lessons God teaches me through these children are more obvious than others. In this case, it was pretty clear.

Abbey has great parents and grandparents, how can she be otherwise. What a lovely thing for her to think of doing before embarking on her journey.
