I’ve always had a close relationship with God. Never questioned it just have faith that I know the truth. I love that G has expressed that same faith. You see.. for his father it doesn’t come as naturally so I’m thrilled that he’s picking it up and believing! He asked me about a year ago if God was a person or a cloud…sometimes I really wonder how to explain things, but I do my best!
Proud to have this beautiful art in our entry way (sorry, not the best pic) but it was handmade with love by my dear friend Andrea (retrohipmama) and I love it!
Probably long overdue, I finally decided that we needed to go to church! So when my church going bff was in town and looking for a church to attend while they were here, I suggested the one down the street from me so that we could try it out and if we liked it, that would be our new home church! So, we went to church for the first time two weeks ago on Sunday and when I picked him up from Kidzfest and asked what he learned it was that we should tell all of our friends the good news and then they can tell people the good news and pretty soon, everyone will know the good news! And also, when you give someone a sticker, you should say “Jesus loves you!”
Our time after church has become one of my most treasured times with him. We discuss what we learned and how to apply it to our lives. We discussed Matthew 19:19 “Honour thy father and thy mother: and, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.” I used this opportunity emphasize that God is telling you to listen to Mommy and Daddy 🙂
On our way home from our walk one evening, G asked to stop at our next door neighbor’s house to say hello… I think he’s off to a great start!!
I have no words to express my love for this child! And having a faith focused home is soo important to me and I couldn’t be happier with how G is picking things up, open to the word and enjoys praying. I am thrilled to report that G and his Daddy have been praying together too!
