We had an FHE on how we should pray for our families and those we love. Jack has really been trying to do this, but......I think he goes a little to the extreme! For example......
Bless Ben that he won't get any chubbier.
Bless Ben that he will grow up and be my age.
Bless Ben that he will get smarter like me.
Bless Mommy that she won't mess up dinner.
Bless Mommy that her tummy won't get any bigger.
Bless Daddy that he won't mess up the basement.
Bless Ben that he won't eat rubber or socks. (my favorite!)
Bless Daddy that his back won't itch. ( He had a sunburn like 4 months ago)
Bless Mommy that her cut will get better (My c-section was almost a year ago)
I'm thankful for Ben and all that he does for us. What?
We should probably get a little bit more specific.
He had a horrible dream the other night and when I came into comfort him he asked, " Mommy, why does Heavenly Father give me bad dreams when I pray that I won't have them?" It broke my heart. I told him that Heavenly Father doesn't give us the bad dreams, our minds just think them up. The next night, without even telling him what to say he said, " Heavenly Father please bless that if I have a bad dream that I will be able to get through it." I thought that was cute.
