Number 2 isn't usually that funny. Because of the way her life has been, she just wants to be in the background. Today I was working as a volunteer at their school and I delivered a message to her teacher. It was for another student and I was just in-and-out.
After school, she said "Mom, I saw you! Then everyone in my class turned and STARED at ME!" And she starts to cry.
Poor baby! It's not fair!
But we put up a dry-erase board at our house about a month ago. The rule is ONLY kind notes to each other. Mom writes the daily schedule and after-school plans in one corner. Then we usually have a verse or a positive saying across the top.
Well, today she decided to write one in. Cuz I was falling down on the job and the space was blank, you know.
So here it is, Ladies and Gentleman....
First Thessalonians 5 : 17 as paraphrased by #2.
" Pray without cusing"
Well, it's good advice anyway. And I didn't have the heart to erase it.
Although, I must admit when I discovered what her father had done to her...
I cussed while I was praying.
And many times thereafter. Especially when she cries because her classmates looked at her.
AND it was my fault that they looked at her.
And I was just trying to help.
I'd really like to go kick him in the B...SHins right about now!
Pray without cussing, Mommy.
And pray without CEASING, as well.
