There are so many precious moments as a mother, and none can beat a child's enthusiasm when he finds a scripture verse he can cling to.
My youngest has a hard time being the youngest. This week we came upon 1 Timothy 4:12:
"Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity."After we read it, I said, "that sounds like a helpful verse to you." He immediately jumped up, grabbed an index card, and wrote out (all of you Moms who homeschool 9yo boys are giving a sigh of precious understanding) the complete verse as I dictated it to him.
I am so thankful for the privilege of time with my children.
