"Just thinkin' about tomorrow, bet your bottom dollar that tomorrow, there'll be sun!"

It finally rained around here, Praise the Lord! 

These pictures are not from this week but from the only other time it's rained here in the past 4 months ;-) so I figured now was as good a time as any to post them.

The boys acted like they've never seen rain before so we played in the big puddles and had a blast.

It was all fun and games until we went inside, and while I was throwing their filthy clothes in the washer they decided to go roll around under the covers in my bed covered in mud and wet mulch.  Fun times!

Changing topics here, our niece was recently in a stage production of Annie. She played one of the orphan's and so we took the boys to see the play. Several of our church members were also in it so it was a lot of fun to watch and everyone did an amazing job.  The boys were hooked and have been singing the songs ever since so I got them the movie version because they kept asking to watch the play again. That was hard to explain!

Andrew is officially in love with little orphan Annie and has declared that he wants her to come to our house and play and that when he grows up he is going to marry her, LOL. So precious! It's hard to explain these "live" characters/actors to him. Cartoons are easy to explain.  Also he can't figure out why his cousin Lauren can't be seen anywhere in the movie and he did not like that Mrs. Hannagan was mean to her and all the other children.  I told him they were just pretending and that Annie wasn't a real person. So he wanted to know if that meant she was a robot.  Kids are so literal, it's too cute.

"Annie can you come to my house? Annie will you marry me when I grow big?"

Pretend isn't the easiest of concepts, huh?
Such special verses and what a promise. If these words aren't true, Jesus would have told us! His promises are sure! Praying in Seattle!
John 14:1-3 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.

We have hope because He is risen! Always praying!
Job 19:25-27 For I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth: And though after my skin worms destroy this body, yet in my flesh shall I see God: Whom I shall see for myself, and mine eyes shall behold, and not another; though my reins be consumed within me.
