A Prayer....

Flip has been sick for the last 2 days and he has prayed a lot for God to make his fever go away. I should have posted this story before now but this is the first time I have thought about it since we have been back from visiting family over the holidays. All the praying he has done made me think of this again and gave me a giggle through all this sickness that he has been dealing with.

One evening, while we were away for Christmas, Flip was acting up pretty bad. You know how it is around family, the kids get away with a lot and therefore act up. It wasn't just Flip back talking that was getting him in trouble. He was jumping around on furniture and running through the house like a mad man. Jeff had told Flipper several times "you better stop before you get into BIG trouble." Flip was being hard headed and kept going. After about ten minutes of Jeff and Flip going back and fourth Jeff finally said "Flip you are going to get a spanking." Flip stopped on a dime bowed his head and prayed
Dear Lord,
Please help me be good so Dad will not spank me.
Praise the Lord!!!
Needless to say everyone busted out into laughter and Flip of course did not get into trouble anymore that night.
