Dearest Companions

In a letter to his cousins:

Dearest Companions,



What sport have ye jolly fellows come up with as of late? Nay, I hope most dearly we shall be reunited once more in the coming days! I have been faring well, and have defeated many virtual foes, ne'er forgetting my two brethren (Thee). Have thee a holiday in the coming weeks? Methinks not, but if so, wither thou goest? I shall ne'er forget thee.



Thy Brother,
Kyletticus, The Bold

Blessings

Kaley's aunt Tammie was praying for our dinner and at the end of her prayer she said - " and bless and nourish this food to our bodies".

We asked her where she hear that and she said - "Aunt Tammie just prayed about it - bless this food and inertia it to our bodies..." :-)

Faith

While Kyle was praying before bedtime he prayed for God to "...keep the terrorists safe." Well, first we asked him if he knows what a terrorist is. He said yes and began giving us the proper explaination. Then we asked him why he prayed for their safety? He said, "What I meant was for God to keep them safe from hell and I prayed for them because God tells us to pray for our enemies." -What we can learn from the faith of a child.
