This morning, we were reading the beginning of Genesis, chapter 24. This is such a cool story, of how Abraham's servant goes to find a wife for Isaac, and the Lord leads him to Rebekah. We had a great time talking about it this morning, and it provided a great opportunity to pray for the future spouses of the kids. Emma and Caleb prayed for their future spouses, and then Noah said, "I didn't say MY prayer!" So, he took his turn praying....
"Thank you God for giraffes, and knights, and ninja turtles."
What a blessing it is, to enjoy these special moments with them. I am so privileged to share in their learning adventure, and it has been quite the adventure for Ben and I as well. I don't think a day goes by where I don't learn SOMETHING. Even if it is just a reminder that my own heart is desperately wicked and in need of the regenerating power of the Spirit of Christ!!
Anyhow...Here are some pictures of our recent days. Emma was my special helper for our little family Thanksgiving. We had turkey, cranberry sauce, stuffing, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, rolls, and pumpkin pie.
We had a great family bike ride to the park, and had a little picnic while we read our missionary story (about the Tila Indians in Mexico). Emma had met a little friend, so she came and joined us for a snack and to listen to our story.
