Today has been odd. Well, not really odd...just one that has caused me to sit up and pay attention. Tonight was not really a good night for the kids and I. Ian was cranky, Drew's not feeling well and I was getting irritated pretty easily. We got through it and it was time for American Idol. For those that "know" me...you know I LOVE American Idol. Ian now says it's his favorite show (along with Biggest Loser). I put Drew down...success. Ian and I were settled in watching our favorite show. Ian decided he wanted to sing. So he gets his drum sticks....or what he calls his microphones...and proceeds to sing. His song went something like this:
Jesus loves the children...Jesus...Jesus...His name is JESUS....
Then he said "hey mommy, clap your hands". So I started clapping my hands as he was singing. He said "hey mommy....put your hands up like this...like you do in church". Wow...talk about bringing it home. He only goes into "big church" occasionally. He was in with us on Sunday morning for a little while and I guess he paid attention. Who knew. I got a big ole lump in my throat and he finished his Jesus song and said "hey mommy....did you like that"? You bet I did!
It was finally time for Ian to go to bed. Not an easy task lately. But he was finally asleep. So, I went back to the living room to read my Bible. Deron has started a new message series The Good Book's Top 40. Each day we read a story from the Bible. Well, as usual, I'm behind...so I had to catch up tonight. After I read my stories...out of the blue....Psalm 127 popped in my head. So I turned to Psalm 127....."Children are a blessing from the Lord".
Thank you God for reminding me just how truly blessed I am.
