Thoughts on life from Pat Oaks
We have a Bible study group that meets in our home each week. For some reason, it ended up being all boys except for me and Kathryn, a friend we met in summer theater in N.C. She lives in Knoxville now, and is faithful to come each week.
Our boys range in age from 14 to the early 20's. We have been together for almost 2 years now, so are a very tight knit group. When we have prayer time, someone always says something in their prayer about how we are family. This last week illustrated that in a funny...really, hilarious way.
I happened to notice when I was out in the yard the other day, that "my" boys had been shooting the BB gun (my grand daughter's BB gun that is here at the house) at my wind chime! When they got here last night I "lit" into them.
As soon as they walked into the house, I said "I have a bone to pick with you boys!" They all ducked their heads waiting. I said, "You have been shooting BB's at my wind chime." Immediately they all started pointing a finger at each other and saying, "it wasn't me, it was him!" One of the boys was late getting there, so they all decided that it was Thadd who did it.
When Thadd got there, I started in on him. Of course it wasn't him, it was all of the other boys! Finally I yelled...you are all lying...it was all of you. Zykeese then said "I admit it...I shot it....once!"
We all ended up yelling at each other, then laughing our heads off. Just like family! I love these boys!
