Bedtime Routine

Over the last 6 months we have prayed the Lord's prayer with Sofie every night before bed. It is often a cutting check to our own spirits as we pray. 

Recently, we have noticed Sofie embellishing her prayers in places. Her version: 

"Our Father in Heaven, may your name be kept Holy. May your Kingdom come soon. May your will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven.

Give us today the food we need (chocolate), and forgive us our (popsicles) as we have forgiven those who sin against us. 

And don't let us yield to (Momma and Daddy), but rescue us from the evil one.

For yours is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory forever."


If that isn't strong-willed, I don't know what is. 

Love to you all. 



I really love to watch the fireworks every year on July 4th. It was fun living in Central FL where we could see Disney/Seaworld/Universal shooting them off every night at 9.

The first year M and I were married a group of our friends went out to the church property before the construction began and shot off fireworks. I, of course, sat far away and shook my head at them in pity for they were surely crazy. One managed to set his sleeve on fire and another skimmed his car with one.

This year I shall be joining the fray. I know I'm crazy.

Allergy Update

Thank you all for praying today. Sofie's appointment went better than I expected. She was very mad at being poked and prodded, but she survived. :)

The doctor was very thorough (though not friendly), and they tested her for all the suspected allergens. It will take 7-10 days for all the blood test results to come back in. 

He wants to keep her on a wheat exclusion diet until the results come in so pray we find foods she's willing to eat. 

I'll update when I know more. Love to you all, Dee2

A Quick Prayer Request

Sofie has an appointment with the allergist tomorrow at 1:30. I am very concerned about having all the issues addressed and taken seriously. Please pray specifically that God will guide this doctor, that she will not suffer, that I am able to provide just the right information, and that we get conclusive results and answers. 

Thank you. Love to you all. Dee2
