Our lease is up on our current home in July, and we are trying to decide whether we can buy now or whether we should rent for another year first. We've been looking at some different properties, so of course the kids have been coming along, too. Today they saw one they really loved. Here's our conversation in the car on the way home:
Max: I really, really want to get this one! It has two fireplaces and one chimney!
Me: Buying a house is a big decision. I'm not sure if we will be able to get this one.
Max: Why not?
Me: Well, first of all, we have to see how much it will cost and see if we have enough money.
Max: Awwww. I really want it.
Me: Well, you can ask God about it. If you ask Him for it and it is good for us to have it, then He will give it to you. He loves to give you good things.
Maggie: (Before Max could respond) Dear God, please yet me buy dis house. Thanks.
Lucas: Maggie, you could say 'amen' at the end.
Maggie: (Loudly) I not talkin' to you! I talkin' to Jesus!
