LightGirl “Mom, what do you want for Christmas?”
Me “I’d really like world peace. … but I’d settle for peace in the house.”
long pause complete with sardonic look on LightGirl’s face …
“I was thinking of something I could buy!”
“Because if you haven’t noticed this house is FILLED with stubborn people.
So. Is there anything I can … BUY?”
At which moment I was practically on the floor in laughter. That’s my daughter for you. Almost fourteen, full of herself, and tellin’ it like it is. The funny thing is that she’s usually dead on.
Our house … filled with stubborn people, attempting to live out the Kingdom, incarnation and all. And isn’t that really much of the problem with attaining world peace too? Our world, filled with stubborn people. Hmmm … kinda makes you think.
