Today’s word prompt from Miss Kate is routine. A regular Friday post where we write for five minutes on a word prompt without stressing about editting or being perfect.
The other day my lad and I were chatting as we set out to go to the foodbank. Talking about how to get up on time and what not. We got to the foodbank and needed to let that conversation rest, but the lad picked it up on the way home again.
Why is it important mom? What you said earlier.. why is it important?
Well, because it’s better for me to pray regularly. It’s good to have that routine and rhythm to life.
But why are you using a thing on your phone?
Oh, because sometimes a person needs help. Like when I made that chart for you, to help you establish good habits? Remember how you told me it helped you?
Oh yes, it’s very helpful. I’m glad you did that for me mom. So does that prayer app help you then mom?
Yes. AND because I have on it to remember to learn from God, I am able to remember to do my devotions or good book reading too.
Oh! That helps you mom?
Yes. It’s a good thing to remember not only to talk to God but to listen to him too.
Then we got home and our conversation ended with the settling back into our day of talking with Dad about his orientation being postponed. And conferring with the lad over what schooling should happen yet. But you know what happened two days later?
“Mom, did you remember to pray?
Warmed my heart. 🙂
