Macy is my doodler. My writer. My love note sender. My girl who leaves signs all over the house. I love all the notes and pictures that she leaves behind. It's one of my most favorite things about her. She will perk you up on even the yuckiest of days. One of my most favorite ones that she left me once that I love says, "Mom, you are buetieful" haha! Isn't that cute. Oh, and I love the ones that say I am the best mom she has ever had....like she has had tons. ha! And my all time favorite, "Reid is a poopoo head". Now, that's funny....even though I don't allow potty talk and obviously it was before she learned the verse, "He who loves a pure heart and whose speech is gracious will have a King for a friend."
One of her favorite things to do is to write something fun on my plate in the kitchen....whether its scriptures, the dinner menu or Happy Birthday Mom. Lately it has been scripture because our church has started this wonderful program called "Hide the Word in Your Heart" and its all about learning God's Word and keeping it with you. Because, if you are like me, we learn it and then forget it. That really frustrates me. Anyway, I love our church so much and the way they challenge us to keep the word in our hearts daily. I also love it that the whole congregation is doing it and we are keeping each other accountable. After the kids say their verses they get a sticker that says, "I can say my memory verse, ask me what it is" and they love that. They will spout it off to whoever will listen.
This memory work program is for 2 years all the way to adult. Macy has soaked it up like a sponge. You can ask her quite a few verses and she can spit them out like crazy. That makes my heart happy to know she is getting it. She doesn't even hardly have to stop and think about it like her crazy mommy. I have to really think about it. My old brain doesn't quite work like her young one, ya know.
I hope you all have a wonderful Wednesday full of wisdom and can feel the depth of God's love.....
