Best Mother's Day Gift Ever


After spending a fun afternoon with my parents, brother, and sister-in-law in the Bloomington area, we had a long, sleepy drive home. Todd and SJ were napping...I was listening to Dave Ramsey to stay awake, and Sophia piped up from the back seat...

Mom, you wanna know something? The other day, I was sitting in the tree, and I was singing worship songs....and the leaves started blowing, and I felt like it must be God talking to me. And I think He was saying it was time for me to let Him come into my heart to stay.


Does parenthood get any better than this?


3 John 1:4 "I have no greater joy than this, to hear of my children walking in the truth."

Is that all you got for mother's day?:)I tell you those girls are something else. They never cease to amaze me. Goodness, you get a little Ethiopian one and we have some serious world changing on our hands.
