As I'm sweeping up the kitchen crumbs enough to feed a family mice for the week, DS4 says, "Mom, I want to help you sweep!" Now what mom wouldn't want to hear that! But it gets even better than that...there we are each with broom in hand, sharing the dust pan when he declares,
"Mom, God's helping us sweep."
And I say, "How do you know that?"
"Because He's in our hearts."
"He helps us with everything." (the emphasis of an energetic, passionate four year old shining through)
"Yes, He does give us the strength we need for everything we do."
And isn't this the lesson I'm learning: 1) Surrender Self-Sufficiency
2) Any strength I have is the result of Christ's sacrifice
May I Learn through Child-Like Faith!
