Just a week or so before Christmas, my 8-year-old had a little devotional meeting with his cub scout group at church. Each boy was asked to give a short testimony about their feelings about Jesus Christ. In case you can't read it, here is what his paper says:
"I am happy to know that I can live again. I know that Jesus made this possible. If Jesus hadn't wanted to be Savior, then death would be the last step. This is only one reason I remember Jesus near Christmas time. In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen."
He wrote this all on his own without any help from me. Sometimes as a parent you wonder if you're actually getting through with the things you are trying to teach your kids, or if it's sinking in at all. Times like these are nice because I can feel like, ok, yes, some of it is registering! I know I'm not doing my job perfectly, but at least I'm succeeding a little. Of course I give huge credit to all of their teachers and leaders too. He has awesome Primary teachers and scout leaders, all of my kids do. We couldn't do it without all the dedication of great people at church. These pictures are some drawings he did when he was asked to provide the picture for the Sacrament Meeting program at church a couple of weeks before Christmas. Don't you just love his sheep?! I just love this boy.
I'm a stay-at-home mom of five who likes photography, quilting, reading, cooking when I'm in the mood, watching movies, going to the beach, home renovation and decorating, swimming, and hanging out with my kids. At the moment I'm a bit obsessed with Downton Abbey.
I live in New England, and my favorite season is spring. I love the colors green and pink.
