Josh's prayers

Josh is saying the most interesting prayers lately. The other night at dinner he said, "Help us all to never, ever die, expect when we get really old -- just too old to live."

He had a lesson on prayers in Primary and came home with a list of things he can be thankful for and list of things he can ask for. Here it is in its entirety:


I thank thee:
friends, family, church, animals, food, clothes, water, body, eyes, mouth, nose

I ask thee:
knowing the ways, a bigger brain, a better president, more clothes

quite insightful if you ask me. He must be listening to talk radio along with his dad! :)

He also asked me if I earned any money. When I explained that I didn't get paid for what I did exactly he said, "So, do you feel okay about stealing money from dad?"

I think Dave needs to sit down and have a talk with him.

That is the cutest entry! I am still lol. I LOVE the prayer about a new president. (He did mean USA and not Primary, right???) =)

Stealing money from dad?! That is just classic. How funny! I love his "ask" list. Elisabeth did that in primary a few years ago and wrote, "I ask thee for nothing. Well, actually, money."
