Such a proud mother.....


I know that my blog has been taken over by coupon craziness lately-so I am trying to incorporate more of the "day in the life of the McCann family" part! I wanted to share something that Spencer did today. This morning he was telling me and Brett about a boy in his class who lied about him, and caused one of his "friends" not to like him anymore. He said that the boy told his "friend" that Spencer was "bad"-I think meaning not a good influence...? Anyhoo, we told Spencer that he should just try to ignore the boy that lies (since we have also heard other things that we do not like in this child....like he does not believe in God!). A while later, as we were getting ready to walk out the door to go to school, Spencer showed me a book and said "I am gonna bring this to read while I wait for my teacher (they have to wait in the cafeteria every morning, until it is time for school to start). I looked at the book and he said "it is not a Bible, but it has scriptures in it". It was a "light for my path" book. He then opened it up and pointed to a scripture and said "here is a verse about lying"-he said, " I think I will show this verse to _____ (the boy's name) , because he will go to the lake of fire if he doesn't stop lying"! I really believe he was sincere in his concern for the little boy's soul! At such a young age (he's 8)! Nothing makes me more proud, as a mother, than to see my children LIVING for God!!

ONLY by GOD'S grace....ONLY! Spencer has a sweet spirit...no doubt. He's a handful....no doubt-but he does have a sweetness about him!
