Taking Cain and Abel to a more personal level

Last night, we were reading the story of Cain and Abel during our family devotions.

The kids agreed that it was very sinful for Cain to pick up a rock and kill his brother with it.

Then the discussion began....

"If I picked up a rock this big (spreading his arms really wide) then that would kill Haddon!" Gideon said, continuing..."We have rocks that big in the backyard! I could throw it!"

Haddon then solemnly looked at me..."Mommy, please don't kill me with a rock."

There was a need to once again go over the rules:

NOBODY IS TO THROW ROCKS AT ANYONE AT ANY TIME....UNDERSTOOD?!?

First of all...WHAT a CUTE & FUNNY story! My little ones are just 1 and 6 months old...so I don't get to hear the funny conversations yet : )

Secondly...I came across your blog from The Mother Letters Project blog. I know this is silly...but my daughter is in the Leelou Blogs cute baby photo contest and I am trying to spread the word for people to vote for her!! I need HUNDREDS of votes for her to even come close to catching up to the front-runners. I have been trying to figure out where to find hundreds of people, and I didn't think it was approriate to ask Seth to post something so silly on The Mother Letters Blog (obviously), but I figured maybe all the people who helped with the project would be willing to go give my little Makenzie from AZ a vote : ) If not, that's ok too. I am just trying to get creative and reach more people! If you'd like to help me by voting for Makenzie, please go to http://www.leeloublogs.blogspot.com/ and spread the word for others to vote as well : )

EVEN MORE IMPORTANTLY THOUGH...I am also recruiting prayer warriors for a tiny little miracle baby named Kayleigh Freeman, maybe you've heard of her and are already praying for her. It was through her blog that I heard about the contest in the first place. Even if you don't take the time to vote for Makenzie, please take a minute to visit HER website: http://www.kayleighannefreeman.blogspot.com/ and say a prayer for this sweet girl!

THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME!!!

Sincerely,
Daniele Brown

PS- THE MOTHER LETTERS PROJECT is in NO WAY associated with this request other than the fact that I found your blog there!!
