After church on Fast Sundays the best way that we have found to pass some time is journaling feelings from Sundays meetings and reading some of the Church Magazines together...
Our youngest, at only 8, gets a small snack after he journals.
Today here is what he wrote [which gave me a huge smile, and at the expense of ruining my future relationship with him I am sharing it with you...
...please if you know us don't mention the following to my little guy.....or the expense will be that he will stop being so darn cute out of FEAR that I will BLOG IT!!!]

"Today was fast Sunday. I was really sweaty.
Although I had fun!!!
*I am thankful for freedom.
and that we can be together forever."
Oh boy is he so sweat....or I mean SWEET!!!
'Will you, um, marry me?' I haven't seen you in weeks! You don't look happy or excited about the prospect of our marriage! You're asking me to give up my - my freedom, my joie de vivre for an institution that fails as often as it succeeds? And why should I marry you anyway? I mean, why do you wanna marry me? Besides some bourgeois desire to fulfill an ideal that society embeds in us from an early age to promote a consumer capitalist agenda?
