My musings, thoughts revelations and humorous observations on my life and life in general
I almost forgot about this blog to be very honest. It wasn't until I received a notification of a comment on my last blog post from 2016 (!) that I realized it has been so long since I have posted here. I would really love to post here more often! So, no time like the present!
These past few months have been very exciting for my husband and I as Christian parents! Our oldest, Isaac, is finally GETTING IT!! AND ITS SO AWESOME!!!
I am pretty sure it started with one of the lessons he learned in Sunday School while we were on furlough this past September. As I picked Isaac up from his classroom, he excitedly started explaining what his craft was.
Recently I have resolved to make an effort to take time, even if I am busy or rushed, to STOP what I am doing, and listen to what my kids are saying or showing me, to bring value to their thoughts and ideas. (This is going pretty well so far, but I know I still have a long way to go!). So, I stopped in the hallway, and let him tell me all about it. To be very honest, I can't exactly remember what the story behind the craft was (maybe Jesus walking on water?) mainly because I was thinking to myself ..." Wow! HE GETS IT!" He understood what he was talking about, without any prompting or "hints".
Just seeing his excitement at the revelations he is making makes me overjoyed at the thought of him wading further and further into this ocean of comprehending God's love for him. It also makes me realize what an important role we have as parents to continue introducing these biblical concepts to him and our other children. (Especially in Haiti, where we don't have a Sunday school class for our kids!) and to help guide their own personal relationships with their heavenly father!
Currently we are celebrating the Christmas season by going through and explaining the Jessie tree to him (You can find out more about what this is here), and afterwards we will continue in his AWANA Cubbies book!
