The book of Philippians

Well, this is the beginning of my journal about our family. As an update for those who haven't seen us in awhile, David is 4 and Nathan turned 3 in December. They are busy boys and keep us running. They are full of fun ideas, cute sayings and mischievous pranks, which is why I want to keep this blog. I want to remember these days, and this is a way that I can do that and also share them with family and friends.

I will start off the blog with a neat little story from the other day. David came home from his Pre-K school where they have been studying stories from the book of Philippians. I was upstairs and heard David and Nathan having a deep discussion about my Bible, which they had found in the living room.

This is what I heard David say:

Nathan, this is the book of Philippians. The book of Philippians tells you everything that God wants you to know. There are also maps in the book of Philippians. They help you in case you get lost. See Nathan, this is where you are, but this is where God wants you to go. The book of Philippians tells you where God wants you to go and also tells you that God will be with you while you follow the map. So rejoice in the Lord always, and again I say rejoice.

Isn't it something when a four year old gets it better than we do! I challenge you to sit down and read Philippians today and see where it is that God wants you to go. Have a blessed day!

P.S. Oh yeah, and don't forget to rejoice!

It's wonderful to know that children do listen and share what they have learned about God.

I know the "louieboys" are keeping you busy, but please keep the stories coming. It's a joy to keep up with them and you tell it so well.
