Just a quick note to let you know I've moved my blog to the following address:

Please visit me at REDEEMED...RESTORED...RELEASED: One Woman's Story of Living Free to read more about what God is doing in my life and how He is working those things to set me free. Thanks so much for following, visiting, reading all about it and supporting me as you have done so many times these last few years. If you follow my other blogs, the posts from all three of my blogs are going to be transferred to the new digs for one big blog about our journey to restoration and freedom in Christ.

Funny Story

Most Moms think it, I'll say it. I just tried to beat and argue the adventure right out of my men because I longed for them to remain safe, sound and close to me AT ALL TIMES. I'm learning that there is a "wildness" to our men that God intended for them to have and trying to rid them of it usually creates quite the bit of chaos in the process.
.
So today as I was reading about one adventurous boy's misstep on Facebook, I recalled my own son and his many adventurous missteps.
.
Here is one:
.
I'm at work and my cell phone rings.
.
"Hello?"
.
"Mom?"
.
"Yes, Justin. I'm at work - what is it?"
.
"Well, I was outside and I thought I'd see if I could throw the baseball over our [two story] house."
.
"Yeah?"
.
"And, well it sort of missed and accidentally hit the window instead."
.
"J---UST---IN!"
.
"I know. I just thought I would call and tell you."
.
"So, did the ball just decide to change course after you threw it or did you generally throw it in the direction of the window."
.
SILENCE.
.
He just generally threw it in the direction of the window. I'm not even sure I still know the entire story.
.
CLICK! - DIAL. TONE.

LOL! Too funny! I AM that mother...with four teenage sons now safety is alwyas of utmost importance. If it weren't for their dad they would never have any fun! And their mom is an old pediatric nurse to boot I have seen WAY too much. I try to balance it...but despite my efforts we have had mutlitple broken bones and stitches and concussions and hospitalizations and mishaps etc...I let them play football..that counts for something doesn't it?
