Today, my youngest and her class got to lead chapel today at FPD. It was awesome to see kids being able to learn about Christ in a safe and loving environment. My family is grateful for the blessing that is FPD. PJSLB
The verse they were reciting is John 19:24
They said therefore among themselves, Let us not rend it, but cast lots for it, whose it shall be: that the scripture might be fulfilled, which saith, They parted my raiment among them, and for my vesture they did cast lots. These things therefore the soldiers did.
On the surface that sounds good. I mean, no more having to wake up extra early on a Saturday for practice (softball, baseball, basketball, football, etc.). I used to dread it as well but now i am beginning to realize just how precious this moment is. One day they will grow up and move on. The craziness of the schedule will be gone only to be left with quietness. Take advantage of the time spent with your kids. It goes away and once its gone, you are only left with the memories. Trust me, I am midst of this surreal feeling right now. God Bless. PJSLB
Well today is the day we are getting two new additions to the family! They arrive around late afternoon but the surprise will be after the dogs come. A few weeks ago a friend brought his liter of puppies for the girls to see. We told the girls to choose ONE dog. N chose one and K chose a different dog. We told the girls that we would dicide which dog will come home. Well my wife and I decided on getting BOTH dogs. Now the Christmas fun begins…
You see, N thinks that the dog will be for her sister, K. She is okay with that. On the other hand, K thinks the dog is for N and she is okay with that. What they don’t know is that we are getting both dogs! Its sweet that both girls are genuine in their happiness that the other is getting the dog they want. Thank you Lord for that.
Pictures coming tonight! God Bless -PJSLB
Being at a place where you can pray in the open without fear is something we all should not take for granted. Its a beautiful thing to see this from the next generation. PJSLB
