Bible covers

Last week Abby got a hot pink bible cover for her bible at church. When she started the older class they gave her a bible and then said they would get her a bible cover soon. So when she came out of Sunday School last week she had a big smile on her face as she told me she got her bible cover. She said look, it has a fish on it and that means JESUS. She then told me that she could choose from a purple bible cover with princesses or a pink one with the little fish on it. She said "I picked the one with the fish because it means Jesus". I was so proud of her, it is these little moments when you get to see a glimpse of Jesus Christ in your child. You cultivate the seed you've planted, it has a slow and sometimes rocky start but then you see the little buds forming, a little bit of evidence that the seed has taken root. Yippee!! Thankyou God for your presence in my life, thank you for the help you provide in guiding my little ones towards you. Help me to focas more on these wonderful glimpses of you then on their disobedience. Help me to seek out and encourage them each time they demonstrate your likeness. Thank you that we are all works in progress, guided by our loving and forgiving father.
