first things first


I'd like to share some conversation that happened here yesterday...



mama-up early sitting alone in the study



4 wee children arise and come down, find me and kiss me good-morning. (the two oldest girls were already up and at their lessons).



My 5 year old son, King Meemer, kisses me and hugs me with one arm (while the others watch behind him, rubbing the sleep out of their eyes).


I tell King Meemer that you should always hug with both arms and that someday his wife will really appreciate his "two arm" hugs.


2 other children approach me, kiss and give me two arm hugs, waiting to see what I might say to them.


The last wee one, King Bonkey (4) comes up, kisses me and hugs me firmly with two arms and then says, "Mama, I am going to hug my babies with both my arms too, okay?"


Praising God, because this little man came to us not knowing love or a father, now he has it all worked out and is already speaking "Life" into his future. May God indeed be Glorified!

What a powerful post! To see and hear our children begin to absorb the things of God into their lives is an awesome thing. In the busyness of life it's so easy to miss the precious moments. Thanks for reminding me to slow down, take them in, and praise God for them. Have a great weekend! Velvia

OH I love it! It is so awesome to watch our daughter learn to love too! I especially like to see her laugh because she did not know laughter before.

Blessings,
Sue

LOVE this! A *huge* smile on my face at that, Kimmie! And at you to recognize that work that God has done in Him! Bless you for being His instrument here on earth in this precious son's life! :)
