Kids say the darnest things

Children can say the funniest things. My daughter-in-law, Staci wrote this: Almost every night I sing several songs to Emeri (Jesus loves me, I love you Lord, and 'Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus.) Although she sometimes sings along with Jesus loves me, I've never heard her sing along with 'Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus. But today, Josh said she walked around the house singing "Jesus, Jesus, precious Jesus, oh for grapes to trust Him more". I guess she's a little too young to understand grace, but she certainly understands grapes! A few nights ago, the tornado sirens were going off. I blogged about that in an earlier post. This is what happened at Jill's house: Hannah said, "Mommy, do you know what we need to do in times like these? PANIC! Panic!" Then, running in circles with her arms above her head, she said, "Panic, panic, everyone panic! Sophia, you need to panic! PANIC!" Miss drama queen!

Bible Study Outing

Today my Wednesday morning Bible study finished out our year going on an outing (an annual tradition). We were so sad that several could not go, including our dear sweet Carolyn Dewey whose husband is in the hospital. Praying for you, Carolyn and Rich!! We went to Wichita and our first stop was to Debbie Fry's home. Debbie had English tea and treats for us. Delicious!

Debbie is a quilter and has her own quilt room. Very fun!

Her house is filled with beautiful quilts!

We drove to Paramount Antique Mall on west Kellogg.


We spent 2 hours there and didn't see the half of it.

After the antique mall, we were hungry so went to the Mongolian Grill on Ridge. That is an experience! You put raw meats, veggies of your choice and pick out your sauce and they grill it all for you. Very good and no matter how high you pile the food in your bowl, it is the same price. So might as well stack it high and take leftovers home for the next day. When we were all stuffed full, Debbie took us to Dennings Nursery on 21st street. Beautiful flowers! Unusual flowers! You have to go!

In the evening, Allen and I drove to Little River to attend the True Love Waits commitment ceremony for our niece, Susie Stephenson. Around 20 junior high kids made the commitment to purity and to honor their spouses after they marry by being devoted to their husband/wife. Proud of you, Susie!
