One More Thing...

...about that little whisker faced 4 year old girl in the post below. She and Lily were playing out front, where I could see them through the kitchen window. I saw two little boys about her age approach them and they appeared to be shouting at them and just acting like little children sometimes do...mean, but not in a dangerous way, just a little boy way. Anjolie and Lily, after getting their "ear-full" turned on their heels and ran up the sidewalk to the door where I met them-smiling at what I would probably hear about those "mean boys" ;). Anjolie looked up into my expectant eyes and said, "Mommy, they are being mean, but they don't know better, they just don't know the Lord." (def. of mean=calling them "poopy heads")I told her how proud I was that she recognized that, kissed her little head and advised her to play out back...my heart swelled. Thank you Lord, for those little glimpses into her heart made new by You.

Praising the Lord with you, Heather! That's a precious moment; I'm glad you wrote it down.

I must admit, I've been looking at your blog entries through Bloglines. Too lazy to come all the way to the blog, but WOW! It's beautiful.

I have sooooo wanted to do a collage in my header. Was it easy? Did you follow a tutorial? If so, do you have a link?

I know you're busy, so if you can't answer me--no worries. Have a blessed season and a Merry Christmas.

GB :) It's good to *see* you!! :) I used photoshop, and it was easy just to put 3 photos side by side and add the text top and bottom. Hope this helps!

Hi Pam :) You *know* what a blessing this was to me :)

You know, I wasn't sure, but I've always thought that the definition of mean was poopy head. I'm glad you cleared that up.
;P

It's amazing how the Lord will show you that your children are growing in Him. It's such a wonderful thing to see and know.

What a blessing for a Momma. God is so good. I love to see/hear our children speak the truth in love. They definately have a heart for Godly things. You are a blessed Mom.

To God be the Glory.

What joy it is when our children show the desire of a good heart and know GOD is such an important part of our behaviour.
