Day of incident:
Monday, January 11, 2010
It was 12:45 in the p.m.
Exactly 7 2° degrees
(I know, I know...it's freezing over there...but remember I have to DRIVE to see snow...)
Driving: My late model mini van
Where it happened:
leaving Toys R Us (I had a gift card so don't start...)
and my kindergartner turns and screams....
"Hey dude....don't do that! You're gonna die!"
I turned to see
two blond "dudes"
getting out of a monster truck...
looking at me
I just shook my head and hurried
into the car.
(besides a slightly bad winter tan...)
My son was earnestly concerned.
You see he LOVES monster trucks...
and he couldn't imagine anyone driving one who
themselves in harms way.
Now we all know smoking, overeating, excessive alcohol etc...
are slow forms of suicide.
My 6 year old...just
Said it out loud.
Sometimes we need to say things...
To people we love...
to people we admire...
to people we're close too...
or folks who are close to the edge...
Sometimes we need to tame our tongues...
but sometimes we need to scream...
"Hey! You're gonna die!"
Is there someone you know you need to "with God's love" enlighten.
Pray that you respond the right way and that you have the God given guts to say the right words.
As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another!
