Spiritual Sunday=

I really enjoyed conference, I am trying to take everything they said to heart, and become a better child of God.

Here's my story-

I always worry when my husband goes to work. He is so tired all the time, and driving to jobs cannot be the easiest thing in the world when you are dead tired.

On this particular day, things were especially hectic around the house, it was a busy day, not much was happening, just the normal crazy.

We had woken up late, so famili prayer was out of the question this day,so was scripture reading.

I hurried and got the kids off to school, and felt a little piece of quiet for a moment before I faced the day.

As I prayed that day, I for some reason blessed my husband more than I had ever did before, I just thought that maybe I was overreacting(I NEVER DO THAT!!).

Kids arrived home from school, then off to gymnastics we went. When we were in the vehicle, Lavi said this-

Lavi- Mom, are Angels really real?

Mom- Yes, they are around us at all times helping to protect the righteous.

Lavi- Dad has an angel with him.

Mom- Yeah, we all do, you just can't see him.

Lavi- Daddy's angel is protecting him right now..

Mom- (Hurrying to get the kids out of the car and start cooking dinner) I simply said "OK sweety"

Not probably 10 minutes later I picked up the phone to try to reach my husband. He picked up the phone and answered it in a voice I don't normally hear.

Me- Honey? Are you OK?

Maka- Yeah.

Me- Are you almost done?

Maka- Yeah.

Me- Where are you?

Maka- At the side of the road on the freeway.

Me- Ummmmm- Why are you on the side of the freeway?

Maka- I don't know.

Me- (panicked) Are you OK.

Maka- I fell asleep at the wheel, and I woke up, my car was sitting nicely on the side of the road, and the car is turned off.

Me- (crying at this point, but trying not to show it) Let's say a prayer and then come home.

I never after this day ever questioned little children's thoughts, they are so keen to know what is around them. Lavi has been right on a lot of things, when I was pregnant with my first boy, she told me I was pregnant, she then knew that it was a boy, when EVERYONE else thought another girl.

But this day I am thankful for little Lavi and her keen knowledge of angels. I don't know what happened that day, but I do know a angel was protecting my husband. I am thankful, as known we are not perfect, but I am thankful that we do what we are asked so when the time comes, we will be protected if needed.

I am thankful for my children, yes they are loud, yes they wonderful.

I am thankful to be a part of this wonderful church, if you ever want to talk to me about my church feel free to email me, and I would love to talk to you about it.

And yes, defiantly thankful for heavens angels watching out over us.

What a sweet story!

Mother Goose said...

what a beautiful sweet story how blessed you all are! polynesians are really in tune with "spirits" or the tender mercies of heaven. My hawaiian heritage has many many special stories that should be shared in private intimate settings. It is a gift that Lavi has and she should always be encouraged to exercise it.

I am so glad that you shared that. It moved me to tears. I am so excited for web site. Sounds like thing are crazy busy. I am such a shy blogger. I am learning to step out of the box. I thought about you in church today. I am glad that i checked your blog out. You are a blessing.

Cheryl Anne said...

wow. I wish you didn't have so many close call type stories, but they sure do make you a stronger person, and sharing your stories sure boosts my testimony as well. Thanks for sharing.

Alice Wills Gold said...

Thank you for taking a break. It gave me only one post to catch up on. I never have time to blog anymore.

CUTEST spiders...I am too lazy to do my kids hair all cute like that.

I am so glad your hubby is o.k. Angels are real. And, how blessed God's people are with visits from angels.

Alice Wills Gold said...

Maybe a couple of angels can fake a divorce and come and pay my husband lots of money to get the job done...he he....Or maybe not...but I will take one keeping him safe over bringing me money any day.

Diaper Diva said...

Oh MY!! I have now resolved to listen a little closer to my little ones. The spiders are fantastic!!!

We really need to pay attention to our little ones...last year we were heading into town to go out to eat. Elias kept saying over and over that he had a bad feeling. He thought something bad was about to happen.He kept right on about it all through dinner. We kind of brushed it off as his imagination(he has a WILD imagination). Then when we were leaving the restaurant parking lot,a car came out of nowhere,didnt slow down,didnt stop,and slammed into us hard!! No one was hurt but our truck took a beating. Chris didnt see the car because it literally came out of nowhere..I saw it just in time and screamed and he was able to turn fast enough so the kids werent hit. It was terrible. While we sat there waiting for the police,We realized that we should have paid more attention to what our child was saying !!!

I missed you very much..Sometimes we need to take breaks and do what is required..
You were inspired to pray for your hubby more that day for an obvious reason..You were his angel that day.
Lavi was totally inspired.That brings tears to my eyes..I know wth all my heart little children understand more than we do, lots of the time.
