Sweet Moment

I have the whole month of February to catch up on, but I am just going to start small. One day I walked in to Hollyn's room to find this sweet sight. She was reading her Bible. If you do not own the Jesus Storybook Bible, go and get it! The sub title is "Every Story Whispers His Name." It is such a wonderful book for children. It is really kids about 5 to 10, but I benefit from it when we read it. Here is a passage from the the introduction:
"No, the Bible isn't a book of rules, or a book of heroes. The Bible is most of all a Story. It's a adventure story about a young Hero who comes from a far off country to win back his lost treasure. It's a love story about a brave Prince who leaves his palace, his throne -everything- to rescue the one he loves. It's like the most wonderful of fairy tales that has come true in real life! You see, the best thing about this Story is -it's true."
One day this month, Hollyn was just talking and she said, "God is MIGHTY, STRONG, POWERFUL, GOOD, and WONDERFUL!"
I just love hearing her say things like that. I just pray those truths would be embedded deep into her little heart. Now... we all need to keep this sweet, sweet moment in mind when you read the next post that I am going to write!
