This Week's Scripture

"Nor shall you bring an abomination into your house, lest you be doomed to destruction like it." Deuteronomy 7:26

This Week's Prayer!

We invite Your Holy Spirit to dwell in these rooms, which belongs to Henry, Anthony, Zoƫ, Asa, Rose, Grace, and Elijah, and in Heidi, Angel, and Angela's room. You are Lord over heaven and earth, and we proclaim that You are Lord over their rooms as well. Flood it with Your light and life. We pray that You, Lord, will make their rooms a holy place, sanctified for Your glory. And may You also dwell in our room and in each one of our extended family and friend's rooms.

Love Notes!

I have been putting love notes in Asa and Rose's lunch box this school year. I just thought it would make them smile when they saw it. Well yesterday morning I wrote them another love note that said, "I love you so much!" Love Mommy and Poppy and put it in the same spot I always put it. But before we left for school Asa came to me with the note in his hand (that he took out of his lunchbox) and smiled and asked if he could not put it in his lunchbox. Well of course my heart dropped and I asked him why and he said because he gets laughed at! WHAT!! He is only 6!! Uuuuuu! "Protective Mommy" kicked in and I wanted to talk to those little children. (Yea, that didn't happen!) So I smiled and said yes he could take it out so that he will not get laughed at (and then I talked to him about life and how the world can be cruel sometimes but we are His children, we are different than the world..... and ...... yes yes, I was on a role with this subject! ;) A little too heavy for him at 6:30a in the morning ;) so I just kissed him and said as long as you know how much I love you. So this morning, I told Tommy what happened and he said that's ok just give him a "cool coded" love note. I said what do you mean. He said make a secret code note. And this is the love note Asa got this morning..... the cool coded love note:

"Yo-Asa- You Rock! From Space Woman"

secret undercover code for "I love you so much!"

The rest of the story: When he got in the car he said he didn't eat his lunch I made him because of Pizza Day. I forgot today they had Pizza Day which meant he did not get his love note. I said, "Oh so you didn't get to see my love note to you." He opened his lunchbox and pulled out the note. He read it and then had a big ol'smile on his face! I explained the "secret code" behind that love note. I could tell he liked this one!!

Does Rose mind the love notes? Rose told me she does not get laughed at and that I could keep the love notes in her lunchbox! It must be a girl/boy thing :)
