Wow. . .2 posts in one day!! :) I just wanted to add a quick story while it's fresh in my mind. I'm trying (unsuccessfully so far thanks to the continued fireworks tonight. . .) to get the kids to go to sleep and I went into li'l Caleb's room to check on him. . .and he was laying with his Bible. I was cleaning out a drawer earlier today (after he and Abby pulled 3/4 of the stuff out of it) and found an old Gideon's Bible/New Testament (probably one I got in college) so I gave it to li'l guy. He said, "I'm going to take this to my room and put it away." I thought that was a grand idea, so off he went. Well, tonight, I walk in there and he was laying in bed, with the Bible sitting on top of his head. When I tried to move it, he said, "No, I want it to sleep next to me." and he patted the pillow. So, he's sleeping with his Bible. Can I really argue with that though?? Joshua 1:8 tells us ". . .but you shall meditate on it day and night. . ." so I guess li'l guy really gets that already. (He also gets the pray for your enemies as he prays nightly for Uncle Chris and Auntie Em's cat Tic-Tac even though the cat REALLY does not like him (or anyone else for that matter).
Ah, the boy continues to make me laugh. :)
