"Isn't That Your Mom?"

A couple of days ago, Brandon asked me if I remembered visiting his classroom when he was in first grade. I do remember. I was there for his school carnival day. I hadn't expected to be able to attend, the opportunity had presented at the last minute and I had jumped on it. I'd been feeling rather ill that day, I was pregnant with Sydney (I think, if my memory serves correctly). Brandon then asked if I remembered what I was wearing that day. I didn't. He informed me that I had been wearing "pajamas" and told me that he'd been very embarrassed when I walked up to him that afternoon. He told me that a classmate asked him, "Brandon, is that your mom?" and that he'd answered, "No, it's my aunt."

Well, thanks Brandon. For the record, it wasn't pajamas, I think. I can't be certain because I don't remember. But circumstantial evidence points to the fact that that it may have been a pair of stretchy, wide legged, cotton pants. Sort of pajama-ish. Sort of.
Shortly after that story, I drove up to the local salon and had my eye brows waxed. And put on some makeup.

Continuing to pray.
Revelation 21:4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.

The greatest comfort we can have is that the Holy Spirit Himself is praying for us!
Romans 8:26-27 Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God.
