I have not been a strong link in the chain of religion.
In fact, I have not been to church (untill today) for months and months.
Not a priority. I know that sounds REALLY bad. But it's the truth.
Well last Sunday, Kate decides we're going. Church starts @9am. It was 8:45 when her mind is made up... don't know where the religious bug was picked up... Possibly the cart at the grocery store... who knows how many hands have been on it before you... but she is adamant regarding her salvation and that of her brother's, her dad's and mine. I think that she's probably right and decide we can skip the first hour ~executive decision~ there was NO WAY I could get them all ready in 15 mins!
It turned out the boys have been growing an awful lot. Each pair of pants was either too snug or much to short to be considered. I told Katey we couldn't go and her tears runneth-ed over. We are talking Flood ~ also a good description for the boys pants.
Grabbing the Puffs Plus, I spew promises of Church attendance to this Missionary of 4 1/2 for the following week. She told me I won't remember so we better make a countdown chain.
Yep. Just like the one we made for Christmas. Only this chain had 8 links on which we wrote the days of the week along with the remaining # of days to SUNDAY... dun dun duuuuuunnnnnnn.
Dear Friends , paper countdown chains work.
They can even get you to a realistic religious experience.
