Out of the Mouth of Jake!

If you have been reading my blog for awhile then you know that Jake is my child who keeps me humble. Today is no different.


Here goes nothing:
Jim is in Jamaica on a Mission Trip. He sent me a text today asking me send him a picture of me smiling. I didn’t want to but I decided that I would since I miss him. I then proceeded to use my camera phone to take the “perfect” picture. You know, the one where your head isn’t tilted to much, eyes are squinted to much, not cheesing to much, etc…blah blah! Yes, I still want him to think I am beautiful.


Well….after taking too.many.pictures. with out any luck I decided to get Jake’s advice. BIG MISTAKE!


I started scrolling through the pictures:
Me: what about this one? 
Jake: no

Me: what about this one? 
Jake: no
Me: what about this one? 
Jake: no
Me: what about this one? 
Jake: no

He finally looked at me and said…..drum roll!!!

Mommy, you have too many wrinkles on your face in these pictures. I wasn’t sure if I should cry or laugh. I laughed! BIG MISTAKE! 

Jake: “See mommy, they are right there on your face when you laugh.” 
Me: Yeah they are! ( He was just vocalizing what I was thinking in my head the whole time.)
Jake: Do I have those?
Me: No
Jake: Will I?
Me: Yeah, when you get old!

End of conversation! 
Good thing I have already hooked that handsome fella, Jim Perdue. 

“Charm is deceitful, and beauty is fleeting, but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.” Proverbs 31:30 
Lord, I pray that I am continually a woman who fears YOU!
