grandma's favorite posts from 2014 - "NO!!! NOT Dear Jesus!!!"

With only two more days left in 2014, I'm very happy to share with you another of my favorite posts from 2014 . . . 
The other day the boys spent the night at our house. When it was bedtime, Caleb washaving a serious case of the, "wiggles", so, I started to pray; "Dear Jesus," When Caleb heard me, he said, "NO!!! NOT Dear Jesus!!!" I continued and said, "Please help Caleb go to sleep." Caleb said, "NO! Do NOT help me go to sleep!" I said, "Please help Caleb's wiggly toes rest and go to sleep." Caleb said, "No! Do NOT help my wiggly toes rest and go to sleep!" At this point it was all I could do to not bust up laughing!!!
I continued and said, "Please help Caleb's wiggly feet rest and go to sleep." Caleb said, "Please do not help my wiggly foots rest and go to sleep." I said, "Dear Jesus," and Caleb said, "Thank You for loving us". I said, "Please help Caleb's wiggly legs . . ." and Caleb said, "rest and go to sleep." I said, "Please help Caleb's wiggly fingers . . . " and Caleb said, "rest and go to sleep." I said, "Please help Caleb's wiggly hands relax and go to sleep." Caleb said, "Please help my wiggly hands relax and go to sleep." I said, "Please help Caleb's eyes rest and go to sleep." Caleb said, "Please help my eyes rest and go to sleep." 
We continued praying for all of Caleb to rest and relax and go to sleep, then Caleb wanted to do it all again! It was not too long after this when all of Caleb was sleeping! I will remember this unusual time of prayer for a very long time!
