sometimes i get so concerned about making sure that the settings are right on my camera, and the background is perfect that i don’t just take snapshots of my boys anymore. but, ya know what? this is it. my life is not a book in the making. it just…is. and i mean that in a good way. so here is a snapshot of my boys on their way to church.
we taught our boys the verse “i was glad when they said to me, let us go into the house of the Lord”
me and adam decided before we even had kids, that church would be a priority for us. not an option. a priority. we were both raised that way, and we wanted to raise our family that way. it would not be…are we too tired? is the day too snowy? is the day too sunny? it is just our life. if it is sunday morning (or night) i guarantee we will be at church. period. and you know what? we love it! our boys do not see us grudgingly attending church because we have to. they see us doing it as an overflow and expression of our love and dedication to our God. it is not a ritual, or a chore. it is just what we want to do. i think that when kids watch their parents complain and argue all the way to church that is when it starts entering their minds that maybe it would be easier if they didn’t go! maybe that’s why they stop going all together when they are older! if we are making it our goal to please Him (2 cor. 5:9 niv) then we will want to go to church so we can grow!
alright. gotta go to bed. goodnight!
