Recently our friends Doug and Karen sent us a kind note reflecting on many memories from when they knew us as children. Karen often babysat for us and one incident in particular has become part of Mahaney family legend. In Karen's words, she remembers, "'losing' Janelle at the Woodward and Lothrop department store [Janelle would have been quite young at the time] only to find her being fed by an attendant in the candy department to which Nicole said 'Why do the wicked prosper!'"
I can still feel the righteous indignation of that moment. Here I am, obedient child, staying close to the babysitter in the store. Janelle, by contrast, wanders off and what does she get? A piece of candy! And not just any piece of candy--if I remember correctly she was found at the Godiva chocolate counter!
The injustice of it all! Scripture was the only appropriate response in that moment. And, fortunately I had just the verse.
Have a super weekend everyone!
See you back here on Monday,
Nicole for Carolyn, Kristin, and that "wicked" little sister of mine
