God didn't say so!

When we realize that only God has authority over us, we discover we're not obligated to be sick! I came to understand this better when my husband and I were asked to help fill in for the baby sitter for a week while our daughter and son-in-law worked.

Hannah was two years old at the time, and her sister Emily was three months. We had fun reading lots of books, taking long walks, and playing Hannah's favorite game, "Simon says," over and over and over again. The rules of the game are that everyone must listen for the commands of "Simon" and then obey. Hannah tried not to be "caught," but when I reminded Hannah that she had moved even though "Simon did not say so" and she was "out," she always giggled and begged to play again.
