On the way home from church, Jonathan and I were delighted to hear Will and Drew discussing their Sunday school lessons. Will was asking Drew what he’d learned and then Drew was explaining the lesson to Will. What an encouragement to know that our kids are learning truths for life!
“Take care of your problems, or they’ll take care of you.”
Last night after spending time with a bunch of friends, Will turned to us in the van and said, “Mommy and Daddy, I was just thinking about who I should pick for a wife when I am a man.” Jonathan replied, “Oh, yeah, and what is she like?” We both grinned when we heard that he had a specific person in mind. We both encouraged him that Will could pray for his future wife, whoever she might be. We also encouraged him that God had someone special just meant for him, if God wanted Will to marry. I guess I better start praying more regularly for my future daughter-in-laws, Lord-willing.
The other night as we were eating dinner, Will took a swallow of applesauce and said, “Ah, the joy of applesauce!”
