I See the Clouds' Butts

So, as we were looking up at the sun-setting sky on our way home today, the 3 year old from the backseat says: "I See the Clouds' Butts" That got quite a chuckle. I realized today how different my boys are. 3 year old: cautious, not taking risks, sensitive, never knowing what he is thinking. 6 year old: exact opposite. Although, they are both sensitive and caring, especially when someone needs help. That could be due to me being in a wheelchair. E has been praying at the end of every prayer: "...and help mommy." Translated, this means, help her to walk. I believe someday I will...be it by medicine (God), God himself, or when I get to heaven, eventually I'll be healed.
We had such a full day today, from swim lessons, to movie theater, to park/lunch. After some time at home for nap and school, we went off to the new play area/jump equipment night at the mall. I just love having things to do. Our marvelous a/c units don't quite keep up during the day, so we plan to be gone a lot! Yesterday we had a full day with a brief jaunt at park day, to lunch, to the historical building. It was a lot of fun, plus I got to know a homeschool mom a little better. L had his last bam bam ball game on Mon. night, so we have an end of season party tomorrow night. I guess I am the parent that's in charge of putting together something for the coach. (And you know how creative I am!) I guess that's all for now. I updated the blogroll, so check out the people that give me insight on life.

Wow...What an awesome post. Yes of course, the humorous moments are great...i.e."cloud butts"...but so are the incredible realities of the faith of a child.

Looking at daily life affirms so many things to me...the story in the Bible where Jesus told the disciples that they must become like little children to enter the kingdom of heaven...it gains so much power when you see the faith of a child in action.

It remains perhaps one of the most incredible things to me...the purity of young hearts. I absolutely LOVE the verse that says "to the pure in heart, all things are pure." I think it has so much relevance to our every day lives...and truly, what is a more perfect example of that then the heart of a little boy.

I know I say it all the time, but truly how very blessed you are to have such a beautiful family...and how thankful they will be down the road to have had parents who instilled values in them that they will carry the rest of their lives.

Thanks for reminding me to continue to believe for those things the world would say are impossible. Truly, to have faith that can move mountains is one of the most blessed gifts of all.

Have an incredible week!
