And despite everything else going on in our lives, our children remain the personification of joy and fun.
The other night, when my sister was staying with the kids (date night! Yay!), Seth prayed an interesting prayer. "Dear Jesus, please help us to be like echoes. Amen." After his prayer, he looked up at Valerie and asked, "You know how we can be like echoes? When we tell other people about Jesus, they will tell other people, and they will tell other people. Like ripples in the water."
Sweet little guy, he's so right. May the echoes of our faith ring until Jesus comes!
