We're so Grateful

A week or two ago Chelle, her kids and I, all went camping to one of our favorite places. It's about a 3 1/2 hour drive, and by the time we got there, it was after dark. So we began unloading the car, and getting the tent set up, trying to build a fire, and just getting things organized. The kids would grumble and get upset at one another often as they trudged back and forth from the car to the campsite.

Finally, everything was unloaded, the tent was up, the sleeping bags were arranged, and we were ready to go to bed. Prayer is important to us, and we try to always remember to give thanks for those things we have been given. This night wasn't any different, and so we gathered together for our evening prayer. Sarah was asked to offer the prayer, and so she began.

It started out normally, offering thanks for our safe trip and for the opportunity to be there. Then she said, "we're thankful that we could get up set...I mean (through muffled laughter) set up..." None of us could contain our giggles because that was such an appropriate comment for the evenings happenings. She continued her prayer, though we were all trying, unsuccessfully, to stop laughing.

I'm sure the Lord has a lovely sense of humor, and was glad Sarah was so grateful that night.

LOL, that is funny :) How fun you all went camping, I wish it would stay warm here so we could do outdoor things.
