Our Blessed Chaos

My hubby + a 1st grader + twins in kindergarten + 4 critters..... Yeah it is chaos, but we are blessed!

Today's Verse

We were in the van driving somewhere and with hubby along I had the rare opportunity to work on my Bible study while travelling so I jumped at it. Of course the kids wanted to know what  I was reading so I read portions to them and we talked about what it meant.  For example,

Me (reading from the Bible) And I will be the glory inside the city...

Carlee What is "the glory"?

Me  It is the glory of God...

Ben  Hey!  Do you know that M&M's only have M's

Me (laughing) Yes Ben, that is true but I am not sure how reading the Bible and a discussion of the glory of God has anyhing to do with M&M's but that is good spelling!

A little later...
Me (reading from the Bible) And the Lord surrounds His people...

Sam Does the Lord surround like policemans surround bad guys?

Me Sort of, the Lord surrounds us but we are not bad guys.

Sam The Lord surrounds us so that we cannot get away kind of like police surround bad guys so they cannot get away?

Me That's right we want to be near God...

Ben Do you know that monster trucks have very loud engines.

Another day Sam was being difficult and arguing with me.  Finally we solved the issue and this is the conversation...

Me -  Sam, I love you even when you are being difficult.

Sam - I love you to even when you are difficult.

Carlee (who was just coming into the room) What??? I need a different coat???
