Today we had 7 boys and 4 girls in attendance who all participated in the children's message.
Pastor: Have you ever been on a vacation? Where did you go?
Oldest girl: Michigan
Little Boy 1: Massachusetts
Little Boy 2: Aunt Andy's house.
Crazy 1: Tomorrow mom and dad are going to Chicago and two other states. (I guess Chicago is a state.)
Pastor continues on with his message. For the past 3 Sundays, we have prayed for rain because of the drought the United States is experiencing this summer. Pastor decided to pray for rain once more.
Know-It-All: Every time it has rained, I keep saying "Pastor prayed for rain."
Crazy One: Please pray for no storms that hurt anyone.
Little Boy 1: Pray for no windstorms.
Little Boy 2: Pray for rainbows.
(I was sitting in the back and didn't hear their exact words. So I summarized what was said.)
Pastor prays for the rain but forgets the other requests.
Crazy One: You forgot no storms.
After telling God that he wasn't finished, Pastor begins praying for gentle rain.
Little Boy 1: Don't forget no windstorms.
Crazy One: We lost our power for four hours. (That was during the June 29th derecho.)
Pastor finally got all the requests in and I'm sure God had a little laugh up in heaven.
