I was reading through our Quote Book the other day. It is a small journal we keep on a family room table so that when anyone says anything worth remembering, we can record it. We started it when Andrea was around three and Michael around a year. We have some priceless treasures in this book and I highly recommend you start gathering your own treasures too.
I’m praying for a softening of the arteries but my cynicism keeps getting in the way of my faith. “Let’s pray about it” might sound like a Christian’s cure all, yet God says in James 5:16 that the prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective. However, my faith begins to crumble when nothing apparently changes. Impatience and agenda-setting prayers have slowly clogged the faith arteries that once ran fluidly as a young child.
