"I remember my Bible verses...The Lord is my helper, I will not be afraid...and I am not scared!"
That made me smile...it is really sinking in!
So once I got the babies in bed (they are used to going to bed with the lights out...so it wasn't a big issue for them once I got them in bed) I took the big three into the playroom. I convinced them that we were having a campout until daddy got home to help out. Once he arrived, we got the big three ready for bed. JJ insisted that he needed to keep a flashlight in the room with him and DC said,
"I don't need a flashlight, because I am not scared. JJ, just remember your Bible verse and you won't be scared."
And then they recited their Bible verses together.
It was an interesting and very eventful night, but the lights did come back on after an hour or two.
