Sons of Guns?

Date Night with Luke & Sons of Guns...

I'm alone with my middle child tonight,

His brother is out with a friend,
his sister is out with a friend,

and it is just
LUKE and I.

Let me tell you about Luke.

He is a boy- all boy.

He loves anything military, tanks, guns, bullets, shooting, guns, bazookas, guns...did I say guns?


I asked Luke where he wanted to eat- he could choose anything.

Mc D's?

He chose Popcorn Chicken from KFC.
Yup... ALL boy!

What do you want to watch tonight?
We can watch a movie or some t.v.

He goes directly to the Discovery Channel.
"Sons of Guns" is on.

I've never watched this show before.
"Luke, have you ever watched this before?"
"What is this show about?"
"War guns, guns they build, guns they shoot,
bazookas, bazookas they build, bazookas they shoot."
"Oh, okay".

Now we are learning about a "19-19"?
400-500 rounds per MINUTE!


So, my date night with my son,

watching "Sons of Guns",
eating Skittles,
having some guy time,

with one of my favorite guys.

Good Morning!

Do you ever just need a reminder?

I do!

"Have a good time"


<3 GOD

What problems are YOU trying to handle?

"As soon as I pray, you answer me;

you encourage me by giving me strength.

Every king in all the earth will thank you, Lord,
for all of them will hear your words.

Yes, they will sing about the Lord's ways,
for the glory of the Lord is very great.

Though the Lord is great, he cares for the humble,
but he keeps his distance from the proud.

Though I am surrounded by troubles,
you will protect me from the anger of my enemies.

You reach out your hand,
and the power of your right hand saves me.

The Lord will work out his plans for my life---
for your faithful love,
O Lord,
endures forever.

Don't abandon me, for you made me.

Psalms 138

The power of HIS right hand

What problems will you HAND OVER to the LORD today?

He does not need our help,
but we sure need HIS!
