Pray 'Out Toppin'!

When our second child, son Zachary was two years old, I began teaching his age group in Sunday morning Bible classes.  I printed out several bible verses and taped them to the wall.  Each week we would concentrate on learning a particular verse by memory.

I'll never forget Zachary's favorite verse.  It was 1 Thessalonians 5:17.  I used a children's version which read:  Pray without stopping.  Zachary's interpretation was so cute and we still remember it now - 11 years later - and most likely we always will.

His version was:  PRAY 'OUT TOPPIN'!  And we should, shouldn't we?

I'm Proverbs 3:5,6. God beat it into my head one year when He was persuing me. He made sure it was mentioned in every book I read and then a needlepoint plaque thing was in a thrift store. I still have it and the verse is also on my Ipod Touch.
Been sick almost all winter-missed your blog. Better than church :-)

Thanks, Robin!

Helene - Glad you're feeling better! Thanks for stopping by. That's my favorite verse you mentioned. I actually put it as my status on Facebook a few days ago (maybe yesterday, actually!).
