Little Lost Girl
We were busy around here last night - grading school, etc. - and bedtime snuck up on us. We realized we hadn't seen Chloe in awhile. Joe and I both set off to find her - calling her name, searching in her room, at her computer, etc. We both COULD NOT find her - that always brings a moment of parental panic. So we set the boys to helping us. It isn't like Chloe to hide - so we knew something odd was up. After quite a bit of looking, I thought I had better start looking in closets, etc. so see if she was playing hide and seek or something. So I looked under HERE....And found this....Who knows what possessed her to do this - but there she was - sound asleep. AND this girl DOES NOT wake up easily. We called her name, shook her - there was no waking her. Both Joe and I grabbed a body part we could reach and slid her out - it wasn't pretty - but we got her jammies on and somehow hoisted her to the top bunk. ALL without her waking - as she curled up in her bunk and continued to sleep soundly. I asked her today if she remembered the whole episode - she answered, "Mom, I wouldn't fall asleep under my bed. Are you being funny??" *sigh*
When you are harvesting your crops and forget to bring in a bundle of grain from your field, don't go back to get it. Leave it for the foreigners, orphans and widows. Then the LORD your God will bless you in all you do.
