Verdict In

Thanks to all of you who casted your votes on "Who Dun It". The verdict is in- mystery solved.

It was Culprit #6
with the basketball
In the office.





It may have been one of my favorite pieces of Guatemalan pottery but she is one of my favorite Guatemalan treasures. (Messy pig tails and all) How could I get mad? Anyway- isn't that what Elmer's glue is for?

Lord, thank you for the reminder that 'the most important things in life are not things'. We know that material possessions are replaceable, but our relationships with our children are priceless. I pray my children learn to be compassionate, forgiving people who live for things not of material worth but for eternal value.
"Forbearing one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other..."
Colossians 3:13 RSV

I really thought it was Aleigha all along. I'm sure you could tell by those big eyes looking at you. I bet any of the other "culprits" would have taken the blame for her though. (Maybe not Mya). Just give her a big hug. Its replacable, she's not.

What a great post! I love the message you wrote about. Plus, I'm now kinda hoping one of my kids breaks one of my favorite India/Guatemala pieces so that I can write, "It may have been one of my favorite Indian/Guatemalan pieces, but s/he is one of my favorite Indian/Guatemalan treasures". I LOVE THAT!!

Priceless pictures, by the way. :-)
