The Narrow Gate

The Narrow Gate

13 “Go in through the narrow gate, because the gate to hell is wide and the road that leads to it is easy, and there are many who travel it. 14 But the gate to life is narrow and the way that leads to it is hard, and there are few people who find it.

Matthew 7:13-14 Good News Translation (GNT)

I’ve been thinking about this so much lately.  Anybody have any thoughts to share?  It seems a mystery to me most days, how we’re ever supposed to find the narrow gate in the first place.  Seems difficult, if not impossible.  But nothing’s impossible with God… right?  ~M

Brianna – “Mom, what’s the male version of a feminist? A menimist?

Me – “No dear… he’s simply called a man.”

 

*And yes, for all who would like to argue the point, there is such a thing as a masculist.  But do men really need a name for it?  Lol…  😉

“Hey Mom!  What is this, a knitting needle?”

Caitlyn Cook (daughter, age 23)

 

How many of you know what this is?  I suppose it could pass for a crochet needle, but it’s actually an orange peeler.  My girls never cease to surprise me by their odd questions, even at this age.  Lol…. 😉

Thought we were sort of due for another question and answer game tonight.  So…

If you could add one word to the dictionary, what would it be and what would it mean?

 

P.S.  I will choose one of the answers and write a poem about it tomorrow.  So think of a good one!  I can’t wait to see all of your responses.  ~M

As a child, I never quite understand the purpose or point of imaginary friends.  Maybe it was the fact that I disliked the real friends I had so much, that there was no possible way I would have ever wanted to make more of them in imaginary form.  All of my children have had imaginary friends, so it sort of got me wondering why I never did.  Have any of you ever had an imaginary friend?

#MidnightMadness – 4/18/2017

A conversation with my 15 yr. old daughter, who had just returned from the next door neighbor’s house.

 

Brianna – “My friend Jenny sure is turning into a teenager.”

Me – “Oh really?  Why do you say that?”

Brianna – “Oh, you know… she’s just growing up and acting like the typical kind.”

Me – “Well, you are fifteen yourself… do you think you act like the typical teenager?

Brianna – “Who me?  No, not really… what do you think?”

Me – “Oh Absolutely not!  Lol….”

Brianna – “What about you mom?  Do you see yourself as a fully grown woman?”

Me – “No, not at all… What do you think?”

Brianna – “Oh mom… not in a million years!”  As she laughs uncontrollably.

 

Guess even my children can tell that I refuse to grow up.  And she’s taking after me!  Lol…. ~M  😉
