on praying

Rylie prays like a Catholic, praying for every single name she can think of… from horses to family to friends to baby dolls- everyone is included in Grace.

Gideon is a bit more more Pentecostal… lots and lots of Amens.  Or, more accurately, A-Mins.  Aaaaaaand, you never know when he’s finished.  Best to wait, just to be sure.

I will be sad when they are more aware, when rules will take over, when the ‘child’ in the prayer gives way to the norm.  I’d take these prayers any day over the Grace of a bishop, clergy, or prayer book.  Forgive me for skipping grace this one time to capture the moment.

Folks, we’re headed into the woods for a little camping next week!  Internet will be spotty, but I’m hoping to put photos up while we’re gone.  Make sure you’ve clicked on the email sign up over there on the right-hand side of the blog.  That way, I’ll come right to your inbox when there’s something new.

I’d say it’s a safe bet Gus will be naked in a few photos.  How long do you think it will take?
