The future of the free world is at hand.......

You all thought I was going there, except I'm not.
I will say this though:
No matter what happens on Tuesday, God is in control.
Now, back to our regularly scheduled blog fodder:
Ever since the day this kid started talking

my husband and I been in complete agreement about his future.

This child is destined to be a Lawyer, a Politician or a Con Artist
(and yes, we do realize they are all very closely related if not one in the same).

Take this conversation tonight at the dinner table tonight:

Ben: "I'm thinking about getting baptized."

Me: "Oh really, why?"

Ben "Well, it's just one more step in me getting to heaven."

Me: "Actually, Ben, you do not have to be baptized to get into heaven, remember all you need to do to get into heaven is to believe that Jesus died on the cross for your sins and ask him to be your Savior."

Ben: "Well, what is baptism for then?"

Me: "It is a public decleration of your faith in Jesus Christ."

Ben: "or it could just be my Publicity Stunt"

Hilarious. If my girls thought that a baptism could be used as a publicity stunt, they'd ask to renew their declarations...

And I have no idea what you are talking about with Sunday School! When did you lose Ryan? I don't even remember you being one of his teachers! You're silly.
