speaking of prayers

After writing my recent post about Miss Delaney’s enthusiasm with praying, I was reminded of a story about my two oldest girls and prayers.

When Brianna and Allison were probably not a whole lot older than Delaney, maybe preschool age, they were spending the night with Gaga (my mom). Before bed they wanted to pray. And Bri, my soft-spoken, shy little girl led this prayer time. She started out with…

“Once upon a time…”

Then Allison, who always approaches her older sister in a kind and gentle voice responded to her error. And when I say kind and gentle I mean thoroughly annoyed. Her reply…

“Bri, that’s not a prayer. That’s a story!”

Oops…I’m sure even Jesus got a little chuckle out of that one.
