God cares about the small things

Ainsley has hit the Elmo stage! So, I saw that Elmo Live was coming to Kansas City & really wanted to get tickets. I looked at them on-line & for the four of us to go would cost over $170!!! Needless to say, that's not going to happen! Then last week, while I was listening to the radio they said that they would be giving Elmo Live tickets away. I of course thought that there was NO way that we were going to be able to get some but would try to listen more to see if just maybe we could. So this morning, we left early to let my mom's dog out before taking Adison to school. As soon as I get the girls in the car, I hear on the radio that if you can name the artist singing the song that you could win free tickets to see Elmo!!! Well, Ainsley is pitching a fit & I just manage to hear the phone number & tried calling. First time, I get a busy signal. The second time, it keeps ringing and ringing...but then they answer & say that they already gave the tickets away! BUMMER!!! I expressed my disappointment & he said that he would go ahead & give me two tickets anyway!!!! Now, I just need to get two more tickets so we all can go. This is just further evidence to me that God cares about the little things as well as the big things that happen in our lives. Did we need to go to Elmo Live? No. But, God knew that we wanted to and POOF, He provided. In the words of Adison, "Isn't God fantastic!?!" I would have to say that I agree & I pray that we all have that child-like wonder & awe when it comes to God & His glorious majesty.

Things have been VERY busy around here lately! Adison has been home from school for Christmas break; reading, writing, asking how to spell things & being HYSTERICAL! Ainsley on the other hand, has been a tough little cookie! She is just now getting over Rosella & it has been trying! She had been teething & throwing up, then suddenly had a fever of 105.2 with ibuprofen! So we took her to the dr & they said it was a virus. Neither Kirk nor I slept well for three nights because Ainsley was still having a high fever even with the medicine! Finally on Sunday the fever broke & the rash broke out. She was very clingy with me & Kirk started affectionately calling her my tumor because she only wanted me to hold her. When I put her down or someone else held her, she started "Screaming like a banshee!" according to Adison. Adison was such a sweetie, she layed down next to Ainsley on Saturday and told her, "It's alright, when I was a baby I had this too, and you know what...I didn't even cry." How cute is that!?!

New to this
