Signs, signs; everywhere signs

I guess this may be a sign of the times…

But the lil’ orange sticky note posted above her beautiful sleeping head is our sign of the times…

My sweet first grader loves Kit Kittredge, an American Girl. We watched the movie and have – over the course of the past six months – had snippet conversations about similarities between the Great Depression (the time period for the movie) and the current state of the economy. About a month ago she recently began having nightmares, three nights in a row. As we talked through that the next day, she had made this very astute connection in her brain that terrified her. Bad economy = Increase in crime. She was afraid that someone would break into our house. We prayed this verse and posted it above her head as she slept. She has not had one more scary night and has only made mention of the whole thing once when she said, “Momma, that verse really helped me. If I wake up, I just look at it and go back to sleep.” 🙂
For the word of God is living and active.
Hebrews 4:12
PS – Okay, sing along with me now, “And the sign said long haired freaky people need not apply…”
