Spencer



We let the kids skip school on Wednesday since I had a full schedule with doctor's appts and I would not be able to pick them up from school. I got to sleep in until 8:00 am! Well, Spencer (7 years old) is an early riser and when I woke up, he was already up. Brett had already left for work and I expected to find Spencer playing his "PlayStation" or watching TV-but when I walked into the living room I saw that he was sitting in the chair reading his Bible! He knows that his Daddy reads his Bible every morning, and most mornings Spencer will run get his Bible and read too. But-I was so happy to see that he had developed this habit enough to do it on his own, even though Brett was not even home! I have said it before, but I am so glad that he is following in his Daddy's footsteps!! This morning , while we were still asleep, he was copying from his Bible (he likes to copy things)-when we woke up he gave us the scripture that he had copied. On his own, this is the scripture that he found to write: "The proverbs of Solomon-A wise son maketh a glad father: but a foolish son is the heaviness of his mother." Proverbs 10:1-I have not checked it to see if he copied it correctly, but I was amazed that he found and copied a verse about a "son". I am so thankful for such a special son and for the hunger he already has for the things of God!

Wow!!! I know you guys don't want to be prideful but 90% of a amazing kid is because of their amazing parents! He is just like my son Emry! Emry is 10 but will sometimes just blow my mind with things like that. Hey the next time we come up to visit mom and dad we should all get together for dinner or something! It would be great to get to spend time with you guys!
