Dh and I have made the decision to reorganize our Sunday morning. Our choice is now to keep our two eldest daughters in church with us through the entire service. Historically they’ve gone to nursery or to children’s church right before the sermon. However, it’s more than time for them to stay with us rather than leave.
So, Sunday morning we took the family out to eat before church and explained to DD1 and DD2 that they would no longer be going to children’s church or to nursery. The girls only sort of protested and appeared resigned, but also satisfied, with our explainations.
Imagine my surprise when DD1 volunteered to pray the blessing over our food and this is what I heard:
Thank you for the food. Thank you for the good things to eat. Also, please let Mama and Dada know how much we love nursery and will miss our friends and our play. Please help them to change their minds and don’t make us sit in big church.
Dh kicked me under the table and whispered, “That stinker is trying to go over our heads on this!”
