'Praying A Quest'
I am so incredibly thankful the Lord has given me the opportunity to be a mommy! He has also allowed me to be at home with our little girls. Each day is a treat, filled with new adventures! I want to follow the instructions written in Deuteronomy 6:5-7, "Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up." Although I am still growing in this responsibility of teaching our children about Jesus throughout the day, I do try to grasp teachable moments. When I am driving in the car with the girls, I always use that time to pray outloud with Wubs and Bella. It's part of our routine. I have taught Wubs that a 'prayer request' is anything she would like us to pray about together. Yesterday, as we were backing out of our driveway, I said, "Burrr! Jesus has given us a beautiful chilly morning! We should tell Him thank you! Wubs, do you have anything else you would like thank Jesus for?" Wubs thought for a moment and replied," Actually, I have a praying a quest." It was so sweet!!! (Her 'praying a quest' was praying for daddy at work. Precious!)
