So, this morning, we went to church like any other Sunday. My husband has been away for several days, so I frantically got the kids ready to go AND the house tidied up for yet another open house.
The kids "earned" their promised treat this week of a cinnamon roll and a hot chocolate for sitting so well in the service last week. They were thrilled.
Anyways, our Pastor's sermon today was on "The Sermon on the Mount". Pastor Glen had memorized the entire Matthew Ch. 5-7 and spoke it as if Jesus were preaching it to us. There was a lot of fun emphasis and props. Ben had a lot of questions during his sermon today, such as
"Why, Mommy, do I have to cut off my right hand if it sins?"
"Why, Mommy, do we have wood in our eyes?"
But, what really made me gasp was when we were driving to the beach today and he told me,
"Mommy, Pastor Glen really makes me want to read the Bible more. I have so many questions".
I could have turned into a puddle in that moment. I pray every day that my kids crave the Word of God and want to learn more about Him.
God is so good. God has known my little mothering heart and known my longings for my children. I just love it when God encourages me like that.
Things to pray for this week:
1. To gain stride in our family's support raising.
2. To sell our home (dropped the listing price, have had 4 showings since Friday)
3. For our inventory for Sprouts to be filled so we can get the container shipped!!!
God is good, all the time. There is no other timeline I'd rather trust.
