I Found the Remote in My Purse
Seriously, a few years ago, I'm at the store, reaching into my purseto get my wallet. I feel something about the right shape and size,pull it out and...IT'S THE REMOTE TO MY TV!!!
And my children, who have perpetrated this injustice against me don'tsay a word. Not even a snicker!Well, I made up for their silence bytotally cracking up. I shouldn't have as I was trying to be a good mom and let them know that this wasn't funny, but my husband had been looking for that remote the entire evening before and all the while I'd been walking around with it!
Well, you told me to put it away so that he (brother) couldn't get it again and change the channel. Since we're not supposed to go in your purse, that seemed like a good place to hide it."Do you see the logic here? (Or lack of it). I did stop laughing eventually (just before the people in line behind me stopped) but later on I got to thinking about God and how I sometimes disobey Him in order to obey Him which makes no sense at all.
And yet, He loves me.
And He loves you too.
I guess I got the better parent in the deal. Still, these are times we will remember when the kids are grown and gone. Embarrassing, but fun. So...LOOK in your purse before you go to pay for something...and look into your heart when you start shoving things in places they don'tbelong.
