Proverbs 15:15 All the days of the afflicted are evil:
but he that is of a merry heart hath a continual feast.

 

God gave me eyes to see, ears to hear, a nose to smell, a mouth to taste and fingers with which to feel.  But He gave me children to make me stop and look, to help me pause and listen, and to remind me to take time out [to] smell the flowers. Thank you, God, for children.

Danny: "Can we have chocolate in our milk, Mummy?"

Me: "No, I don't think so this time; you already had enough today (in your cookies)." [I try to limit their sugar intake each day]

Danny: "But Mummy, God made the cocoa bean, you know!"
