Different Sunday Morning

This morning before my feet even hit the floor I started praying for this Sunday morning to be different. After reading a friends blog on investments I had been thinking about how most Sunday mornings have gone. I didn't want it to be filled with yelling, rushing around and complete ciaos before church. I prayed that the kids would be nice in church so that I could listen to the minister and that I would listen and not dislike him just because he is not the minister that was here before. That may not be nice, but it is honest...
This morning God answered my prayers in so many ways. Everyone was ready for church by 9:00 and I didn't feel stressed at all. We went to Sunday school as a happy little trio. Church was great too. Right after the kids returned from children's time they both laid down in the pew and went to sleep. That has never happened before. I was able to really listen to what the preacher was saying. They were things I needed to hear. Just when everyone was singing the invitational song the boys woke up. This may sound very trivial to some, but it was an answered prayer for me, on this different Sunday morning. I pray they can all be this different!!!!

God is so good! He gives us what we need just when we need it--when we are ready to accept it. Way cool!
