Cupcakes in Heaven?

On the way to school this morning, Em and I were praying in the car. We put on our “Armor” every morning in the car so that neither of us starts the day “naked”…because that would be…AWKWARD! It goes something like this:

Me: Lord, we put on our armor. We put on the belt of…

Em: TRUTH!

Me: Yep! So that we share your truth and always choose to tell the truth, not letting the devil tempt us to lie.

Me: We put on the breastplate of…

Em: RIGHTEOUSNESS!

Me: Yep! Lord, we want to do things Your way, not ours, so help us to be a light and choose to do the right thing.

Me: We stand with our feet in the gospel of…

Em: PEACE!

Me: Yep! Lord, we thank You that You sent Jesus, the Prince of Peace! And we trust You as our foundation! Your ways ROCK and no matter what the d(D)evil tries to throw our way, we will trust You and know Your peace!

Me: We put on the helmet…

Em: OF SALVATION!

Me: Yep! Lord, we thank You for Your word! We want to renew our minds with Your word because the d(D)evil tries to lie to us all the time so we need to know the difference between Your truth and his dumb lies!

Me: We take up the shield of…

Em: FAITH!

Me: Yep! Lord, we thank You that FAITH can ward off the fiery attacks of the e(E)nemy.

Me: We take up the…

Em: SWORD OF THE SPIRIT, YOUR WORD, SHARPER THAN ANY TWO-EDGED SWORD AND WE WILL PRAY AND PRAISE CONTINUOUSLY!

Me: EM, YOU ROCK! I am so proud of you!

Me: Em, today is a special day. Today is Pearl’s birthday.

Em: (Smiles) Cool!

Me: Do you think she’s sharing her cupcakes with Noah?

Em: They never even met here, do you think they know each other?

Me: Well, Pearl’s mommy and I are friends…

Em: Yeah, they are probably like, “Hey, isn’t your mom Adrienne?” and “Hey, isn’t your mommy Laura?” and then she’ll share her cupcakes.

Me: Yeah, that’s probably how it happened, though that conversation probably took place a few years ago…


And look at that! Cupcakes in Heaven! Who knew?

  1. I’m new to your blog and I’m loving it. That is very cool that you pray that everyday. God has been putting that verse on my heart this week. Thanks for your thoughts.

  2. I just found the cutest picture book that explains those verses so very acurately for little ones. My kids are loving it!

    And I’m lovin’ those cupcakes…beautiful!

  3. Very cool! 🙂

    And, it’s not in the Bible or anything, but I’m pretty sure that in heaven, the cupcakes have no calories. 😉

  4. Great way to teach God lessons in small doses. I am taking notes! I love the cupcakes – aren’t you crafty! I love you and am praying for you this week!

  5. Ade! This is one of my greatest memories of truth you shared with our RA staff. I have shared it with many others along the road since the “old days.” Thanks for continuing to speak God’s truth faithfully to others. Blessings,
