Praying for an Anvil
While I am out I will need to drive by (and take a photo of) the 'prayer stop' we have here in town. Or is it the prayer shack? Anyhow there is a prayer pit-stop with white patio furniture out in front on New Hamsphire Blvd. Its a smallish trailer like building for you to go inside and I assume... pray. There is limited parking so you can't take too long. I am sure praying there would be effective. I'm thinking of putting a prayer outhouse in my back yard and putting signs up to advertise. We could sell prayer biscuits and holy water to go along with our outhouse. Now I am just being sacrilegious. Sorry. Perhaps you should pray for my well being at the prayer shack next time you stop. It is actually my opinion that you can pray anywhere at anytime if you wish. But having a specific place to stop is a okay too.
Tonight my girls are up to some pranks. They just left a note outside a doorway where they knew Little Boy would be coming. It read "we stole your some of your stuffs" Or something equally as grammatically incorrect (not unlike "equally as grammatically incorrect"). A trail of notes led him to a Mini Ninja video game tied to an obvious string. I almost foiled the plan when doing my usual pick up routine as I swept through different rooms in the house gathering up the effects of the day. This game was boobie trapped! When Little Boy went to pick it up Little Girl was on the other end yanking away. What a blast watching them play this way when TV and video games have been banned for the evening. I just instituted a 4:00 curfew for video games. There are a whole host of other regulations, but that is the newest one. This is what we do in the summer time when all the temps outside are over 100 (and all the leaves are green).
So here's wishing that I will be motivated to bring a camera along on my next drive to prove the existence of an anvil plea and a prayer shack. Does anyone out there doubt me?
