The Holdy Spirit and political ads

Exerpt from real conversation I had with Zoe over lunch today:

Z: "Mom, does God live in this world?"
Me: "well, that is a great question. God sits on His throne in heaven and sent His special helper the Holy Spirit to be with us, so yes, God is in this world. God is everywhere. That's why you don't have to be scared when it storms out."
Z: "I do not understand why God makes thunderstorms. They are loud and scary. Why can't He just tell them to stop?"
Me:"Well, I think He could if He wanted to. Thunderstorms have a purpose. The rain waters the trees and the grass."
Zoe: "Mom, what does the Holdy Spirit hold?"
Me: "You mean the Holy Spirit?"
Z: "No, the HOLD-y Spirit. What's he holding?"

Guess I've got a little more explaining to do on that one...

On another note, I have completely forgotten what people advertise for when there is not an election year. Can someone remind me? Now I am not going to name names in our house but suffice it to say that we are a house that is happily politically divided (we have fun little debates every once in a while--all in good fun, I promise!) and can you believe we've gotten phone calls from both Sarah Palin and Michelle Obama?! :) I actually love election time, I am just way tired of the overdone ads. Let's get on with it already.

Still no "after" pics of the boys' bedroom. It is a work in progress but they are getting antsy to sleep in their new room so the pressure is on for this weekend. We shall see. Happy Friday, friends!


  1. Can't wait to see photos of the boys' new room:) Love the "Holdy Spirit" comments which reminds me of my sister's bathtism beliefs. You're a good women to engage in healthy and friendly political debates with your hubby!

  2. Tressa, the boys' new room will be the one you guys stayed in! And I bet you can guess which side of political aisle I fall on...but it is good healthy debate and we enjoy it! :)
