A couple of nights ago our bedtime devotion was "Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart." K was particularly captivated by this Biblical promise.
I tried my best to explain that when we love God more than anything in the whole world, we will want what He wants. K walked away with a different understanding...
"So, I just keep lovin' God and then He will give me chocolate cake if I want it!"
I told her that was not exactly how it worked, but to avoid 'over-explaining' I let it go.
This morning I told the children that we would be traveling to Atlanta tonight for Daddy's reunion party--and that tomorrow we would be celebrating Granddaddy's birthday.
"See, Mama, " K exclaimed, "God is giving me chocolate cake!"
