Conversations heard tonight at Chez Owens

I walked in to kiss Boo-Bear goodnight, this is what happened...

me: "Hey Homie Slice!! What's happenin', ready to pray??"

Boo-Bear: "Mom! Shhhh, I'm trying to hear God's voice."

me: "Oh, okay sorry. Scoot your feet over so I can sit on your bed and wait with you."

a couple of seconds pass.

Boo-Bear: " I can't hear Him!! What does He sound like?"

me: "He's a still voice inside of your heart."

Boo-Bear: "You mean He won't say...SARAH..."?

me with a bad case of the giggles now. :)

Also heard around the house. Middle Daughter has a new "friend" in her life. He lives upstairs from us and is quite the hottie.

The Son to Middle Daughter: "So what's up with you and ------?"

Middle Daughter: "Nothing!"

The Son: "Well, I'm coming with you two when you walk the dogs tonight to make sure!!"

then he turns to us and says, "I'm glad I'll be out of the house when Boo-Bear starts dating!! I don't know if I can take all of this!"

So I've got one daughter with her eyes still squeezed shut trying to hear God's voice and another daughter walking our dog with a boy who can bench press 350 like it's nothing and a son laying in bed trying to deal with having two sisters in his life.

heehee good times!

I wonder what it will be like for my little girl with 2 "little" brothers there to protect her!!

Melanie said...

I vote for the son-- A guy that worries about his sisters ---He's definitely a "keeper".

LOVE your posts .. always interesting to see another corner of the world from an American perspective, and also includes the side of life not usually seen by the travel mags.

Isn't it funny how they'll be fighting one minute and just about ready to lay down their life the next!
I think Boo-bear wants the whole "samuel", why are you calling me, experience. It is samuel who keeps getting out of bed to see who called isn't it? I'll have to zip over to trusty Biblegateway and check-do you use that? I'll send you a link if not, it's like google for Bibles, Tracey
ps naked Korean reminds me of the naked guy in Friends!

Tracey @ozcountryquiltingmum said...

Yep, Samuel. So pay special attention now that she doesn't come in your room in the middle of the night and ask why you called her!!

This exchange is sweet and precious, my son and daughter (now married), both grown; have such a special relationship because of shared experiences growing up both special and every-day. I love to read your posts!
