Positive Peer Pessure

 No one makes them do this.
On this particular day we were just spending the afternoon at 
Creekside Cottage.  Several games of Ultimate Frisbee had been played
and the next thing we knew they were out under the tree
with their Bibles.
 It blesses our parent hearts to see them in the Word
together... and independently. 
They challenge each other with great books and 
uplifting conversation.

The age range keeps expanding as younger and younger ones join them.

This is a direct result of the older ones deciding to teach the younger
ones to play frisbee so that in days to come they will be able to play too.
Just as soon as they are old enough not to get hurt playing with the big guys.

It is so sweet to see little ones snuggled up with older siblings or
their friends and listening in on the discussion.

Last week's topic?

The Sovereignty of God.

You know....
the light fluffy stuff.

Dearest Becky,

As always, your posts are so inspiring. Pure poetry.

I cried also at the loss of my pictures especially my stray cat I lost a little bit back. All my precious animals and my tablescapes are gone.....we live and learn, don't we?

What a wonderful thing to see young people doing and what a blessing for you! The older being such great examples to the younger. What a gift.
