I am happily married to an amazing military man who spent 9 years enlisted and is now an Officer in the US Army. We have two amazing boys who are not so little any more! They still infuse every moment of every day with creativity and energy, and make my life an adventure.  I was educated at home, and am now teaching our children - second generation homeschoolers! I try every day to become more like Jesus Christ, and to love like HE does. If you want you can try and catch me at bethylovesandy@yahoo.com

The Message translation puts it this way "God gives out Wisdom free, is plainspoken in Knowledge and Understanding."

Moments in life

 Andy sent me a song today. When we were dating  he use to "give" me songs on a regular basis. He rarely does that any more - I guess daily life just gets in the way, and time flies by... But he said he heard this one, and thought of our boys, and could almost hear me singing it to them. So, I will post it on here for awhile, because I can. When you hear it, think of the little moments that make life special. Like these...

When asked the other day what kind of pizza he would like, Zion replied, "Blue". 
 Not pepperoni, or pineapple, or plain cheese. "Blue." 
 I love three year olds! 

 Mom and Canaan were sitting outside a few days ago, and Mom commented to Canaan that she loved the sound of the trees, blowing in the wind. Canaan replied "They look like they are dancing." Mom agreed with him, and they watched the trees dance for a moment together. Then, in the wisdom that only a five year old can have, Canaan said, "I think the trees are praising God. That is why they dance - to praise Him." 
 It says in the bible that if we don't praise Him, the rocks will cry out (Luke 19:40) so it makes sense that the trees praise Him. I am so glad that my little man recognizes that, all by himself

So I guess I am a little slow today... What is the song? There are only 166 on your playlist down there! ha ha!
I LOVE that Zion wanted blue pizza. That is the best. His talking will probably end up being the most clever of all the kids!
And, what a beautiful moment. I hope that Canaan will never forget that moment with his Noni.
