Bath Time Gone Wrong

Since I don't use my tub often (it takes too long to fill it), it took me a while to realize it was the perfect bath playtime tub. However, because I don't use it often, we had a rough beginning. We had gotten Caleb in the tub and the water was running. He had been cautious at first, since the water came out like a waterfall. Then his dad came in a thought he would make it a little more fun. He turned on the jets.  A jet of water spurted  past Caleb and up the wall. He was out of there like a flash and determined to never get back into that unruly body of water. His mom tried to comfort him. His dad tried to comfort him. Then I got an idea.  We could get into the tub with him...fully clothed of course. And that is what we did.  He still was leery, but finally relaxed a little and played in the bubbles.

I found this in my inbox this morning:

"Insufficient Funds

Insufficient funds!  What an ominous phrase.  In the great gallery of famous phrases, “insufficient funds” hangs in the same hallway with “the IRS will audit your account.” “A root canal is necessary,” and “Let’s stop dating and just be friends.”
You’re overdrawn! You gave more than you had to give. You spent more than you had to spend. And guess who has to cough up some cash? What do you do if you don’t have any money? What do you do if you have nothing to deposit but an honest apology and good intentions? You pray that some wealthy soul will make a huge deposit in your account.
If you’re talking about your financial debt, that’s not likely to happen. If you’re talking about your spiritual debt, it already has. Your heavenly Father has covered your shortfall. In God’s house you are covered by the roof of His grace! "

Catchy title, right?  You bet. Max does a great job each day with his message.

Having lived in Boston and attending the marathon on Patriot's Day, I am praying for all those involved with the terrorist 'bombing' at the end of the 'track' today.  Please join me in prayer that as a nation, we will turn back to God and that He will save us from those who would do us harm.
