Our Journey Home

Thursday, December 3, 2009


This morning, as I was loading the girls into the car to run a few errands, Wubs made a confession. Apparently she was feeling a little convicted about an incident that happened in her Wednesday night discipleship class. "Mama, when we were supposed to do our craft at church last night, I didn't go to the table when my teacher told me to." "Why didn't you obey your teacher's words, Wubs?" "Well, I was making a tower." "Hmmmm. Do you think you could have made a tower after you went to the table to make your craft?" "*sigh* Yeah. Do you forgive me?" "Of course, I forgive you Wubs! Do you know why Mommy will always, always, always forgive you?" "Why?" "Because Jesus taught me how to forgive. He will always forgive me, and I need to forgive others."
"Jesus will ALWAYS always forgive you?!? That's really cool, mama."

Sweet Wubs. We are praying that one day, both of our girls will understand just how 'cool' Jesus really is! It still amazes me that He loves me, and He forgives me. Always.

"As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love. If you obey my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have obeyed my Father's commands and remain in his love. I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete."- John 15:9-11

  1. What a sweet story!

    Thanks for your cute comment. I can't promise a baby bump for sure ... right now things are just getting bigger but not necessarily in any particular shape, you know how it is the first few weeks. ;) I'm definitely making my way into maternity clothes - people told me it would happen faster this time, I wasn't expecting this fast! But who knows, we've got 3 weeks until our trip, a lot of baby bump-ing could happen by then! I'm going to look at my calendar this weekend and shoot you an email to set up a date. :)
