Bedtime Prayers

Bart and I have developed one good habit over the past nearly 13 years We pray together every night before falling asleep when we are both home. Sometimes our prayers are long, sometimes they are short, and their content is often the same, but sometimes he surprises me.

Last night, he began as usual but in the middle of his prayer I burst out laughing. "Lord, thank you that we are all healthy. Thank you that none of our children are facing eminent death, except at our own hands"

(now please don't tell me I have to explain this as simply a joke and remind you not to call CPS.....)

Sometimes you just gotta laugh....

It is always nice to inject humor in your life whereever that may be. We don't often hear it in prayers but why not? Beautiful!
