    • I Will Rest In You
      It has been a long time since I was able to post here and recently was encouraged to start posting again.  I will start by posting a video for those who are battle weary from the spiritual onslaught going on during these last days.  Be encouraged, replenished, and comforted… you are not alone.
    • The Word as an Onion
        Too many merely accept the Word on the surface.  They pick and choose this verse or that and build their doctrine out of it.  One instance for example is that in regard to adultery.  God’s Word says that you should not commit adultery; wherefore, those who have not slept with someone outside of their […]

A Funny Family’s Day Out

Posted by truthoughts on May 9, 2008

The other day, me, my husband and my mom went over to my aunt’s house and had dinner. My great uncle was there, which I haven’t seen in about 10 years. He lives across the country, so I really only get to see him when he comes to town. There were many family members there for his visit.

At one point, I took notice because all of the women were outside with the kids and the men were inside – upstairs playing pool. I thought it was so funny cuz it reminded me of those movies. What really made me laugh was when my uncle came outside because my cousin called him when she saw him pass by the door to tell him to let her husband know that they had to leave soon to get the 18 month old baby to bed.

My uncle joked, as only a male could in that position and scurried up to give the message. A few minutes later… down he came letting us know that ‘the men’ had a message, though he wouldn’t share it… (there really was no message). He said that, really – he would be down and ready to go as soon as he finished his game. So, naturally, my cousin replied with, does that mean the game he is playing or the one he is about to play? She wanted specifics because as women know… with men, we have to get specific. 😉 So, my uncle clarified that it would be the game that was already being played.

While we waited, the kids played in the sandbox and the adults talked. Once it had gotten dark, we rounded up the kids and went inside to round up the men. Well, my cousin and her family left without a hitch… mine however, well, lets just say that my husband has a tendency to enjoy playing with the kids and getting them all riled up. My aunt threatened that next time she would have to get out the belt for him. It seemed that everytime we thought we were ready to go… a train of kids would round the corner, running full spead to try and get past my husband, who was ready to tag them as they passed. He is just a big kid himself.

Well, once we left (we had driven my mom and my niece and nephew) the kids fell asleep. Peace! We had a great time and we hope to see them all again soon.
