The Lights Went out.......

About 2 weeks ago, my husband, my stepson, my two boys and myself were sitting in our living room playing a game when the lights suddently went out. I spoke to my boys saying that "mommy is right here, just stay where you are" as my husband went and found a lighter and some candles. I was so proud of my boys, they didn't cry or scream, they trusted their mommy and daddy to take care of them. We were a little worried because it was supposed to be below 0 that night and the temperature in the house began to drop quickly. My 4 year old Joseph said he really wished the lights would come back on and I said "well joseph we can always pray that the lights come back on" and we prayed together. About 10 minutes later I saw joseph laying on the floor with his eyes closed and a few seconds later he popped up and said "mommy i prayed to God that the lights would come back on". I told him how awesome that was and that God heard him. A few minutes later the lights came back on and I looked at my little boy's face. He was beaming and smiling from ear to ear. I told him "God answered your prayer" and he was so in awe of everything, it was so neat to see and be a part of.

Anytime we mention the time that he prayed and God answered him it immediately brings a huge smile to his face and to ours. I hope we get that excited when God answers our prayers!
