Sleepover



I love having a friend who has children the same ages as mine. My friend Maria's children are my favorite children to have over for a sleepover. I usually don't want to send them home when it is all over. Our children just do not fight, they really get along with each other. Moriah and Emily are the ones on the floor. Daniel and Micah are eating pizza. Jocelyn is Amy's BEST FRIEND! They are so cute together. Last but not least are Lyndelle and Joel. No, she did not sleepover. I am not that brave. Lyndelle was just here for a few hours so that Jeff and Maria could go out on a date. I had so much fun with her. It was like having twins for the night!
Okay now on to my life. I have something to tell you. My friend Sheila is going through a REAL hard time right now. Her daughter Susanna is having medical problems, they have been in and out the hospital, had many tests done and they have NO answers. The family is scared, but they are trusting the hand of our Heavenly Father. Well Life Action had a prayer meeting for her this morning. I love Sheila and her family, so I had to go to this prayer meeting. Here is my confession....I did NOT want to go! I hate praying in a group of people. I went to the meeting, but I never said a word the entire time. I kept sitting there comparing myself to these other ladies who were praying. I just couldn't pray as wisely as them. Why do I do this to myself? I do this in a lot of areas of my life, but I really do not enjoy feeling so inferior to people. If any of you have any answers, please share them with me.
I am so excited. I just found the answer to my question on someone else's blog. I just had to add the quote. "You will never really enjoy other people, you will never have stable emotions, you will never live a life of Godly contentment, you will never conquer jealousy and love others as you should until you thank God for making you the way HE did." Isn't that an awesome quote!!?
