We must be doing something right. (Yep, I'm Holy Rollin' again.)

I love the weekend. I love Saturdays because even though 9 out of 10 Saturdays we are running around like crazy with a million things to do, I get to do those million things with my two favorite guys. I love Sundays because we get to go to church and then spend the rest of the day coming down off our Saturday high.

I'm sure I've said it before, but I am certainly not the best Christian and don't go around preaching to everyone about what is right and wrong. However, we do try and go to church (I love our church, but that's another story) and we try to raise Chase in a way that reflects what we believe. I have found that as he gets older this is more of a challenge for me because it requires me to be more faithful and Christian in the way I live around him. I feel as if I'm constantly striving to set a good example for him and build him a firm foundation. I want Chase to know God. A God that loves him so much, he gave his son for him. I mean seriously, think about that. He gave his son for Chase. For us. A God that has made a promise to be there for all of us always. I want him to know that Jesus will take care of him. All he has to do is trust in the Lord and all will be ok. Of course for Chase to learn these things, I must learn them too... and I am.

Since Chase is still so young, I've often wondered if Jeff and I have been successful at teaching him these things that are so important to us and tonight I got my answer. We were on our way home and a terrible storm with lightning and thunder was over us. It was one of those storms where the lightning is blindingly bright and lasts for what seems like an eternity. Chase is not a big fan of these storms and told us he was scared. I quickly replied that there was no need to be scared because Mommy and Daddy were with him and would never let anything happen, we would take care of him. He quickly replied, "Jesus will take care of me too. Today and tomorrow." My heart swelled at those words... Yes, we must be doing something right.

**I am grateful for:
1) the rain
2) the thunder
3) the lightning
4) priceless moments
5) peacefulness
