Zook and Jesus

Can you tell I'm ready for summer?  Yes, I changed my picture to one of my angels jumping into the pool!  My brain is gearing up for my "blog season".  I think winter gives me writer's block!  I log in and start to type, but it's just a sad jumbled mess!  Have I mentioned lately how I despise cold weather and nightfall at 4 p.m.?!!?!?!

On to Zook (actually Zoosk)...I was on the phone with my sister the other night and we were discussing her recent break up with the worst boyfriend ever, and my Beebs was sitting right beside me, of course, eavesdropping.  She immediately perked up and said, "I have an idea!  Nahnie should join Zook."

"Join huh?" I said.

"You know, Mommy, the place on the Internet where you can meet nice dates."  Watch TV much Beebs?  And what channel is she watching to see Zoosk commercials!?  Yep, Mother of the Year right here;).

Lots of my posts deal with Jesus...or should I say, Annie has lots of Jesus questions.  The girls and I went to church without Daddy on Sunday.  It was Palm Sunday and Communion Sunday.  After a brief description (for the 50th time) of the Lord's Supper in the best whisper I could muster up, the Elders distributed the "bread".  Now the bread in our little Chapel is made of Pillsbury Pie Crusts which have been rolled out on a cookie sheet and brushed with butter.  I know, YUMMMMMMMYYYYYY!  My kids love, love, absolutely love Communion because of the "bread" and they get grape juice too.  Beebs went so far as to take two, yes I said two, pieces of the bread from the serving plate.  But I digress.  Right about the time we got our tiny grape juice and Annie spilled a little because she had to get the fullest tiny cup on the tray, she looked over at me and said, "Mommy, did Jesus get married?"  Where in the world did she come up with that in the midst of all the chaos.  It was such a sweet question, but really?  It's Palm Sunday.  Jesus is about to die on the Cross for our sins and then rise on the 3rd day, and you want to know if he got married? 

Lord help me...


  1. I'll take that question any day . . ella has asked me things like "if joseph is jesus's daddy than why is God also his father?" or "when is jesus going to come back?" - she's too young to be thinking like this! but i just tell her to call grandpa :)
    enjoy the summer - we're just now reaching 50 degrees for our highs! oh how i miss the south!

  2. Ha! Both stories cracked me up! First, the zoosk thing reminds me of when Lauren told me I should try the Dr. Phil Weight Loss Challenge (I was pregnant with Grant at the time). Second, I had to smile when I saw the *bread* going off the serving plate Sunday-- Grant probably would've done the same thing. I'm thinking of making plain pie crust for dessert some time just to see what the kids do. :)

  3. Watching my weather channel and praying you guys are OK!! my mom is trying to keep me posted on everyone at Chapel but i've been told bluff park looks pretty bad! stay safe!!
