Sunday Snapshot -They Are Getting It!

These two girls constantly amaze me.

They are at an age where their minds are questioning and soaking up information like a sponge and as much as Hubby and I have learned and grown in the past few years, our children have learned and grown right along with us and today, the girls reaffirmed to us that they are watching, they are listening and they are totally getting it.

We were at my Mom's today and as Hubby and I sat together for a quiet moment (and only a moment - ha), the girls came running in and what we heard was so great!

As they ran in, they were talking and setting up their pretend game.  Apparently, they had decided to pretend to be sisters (not too much of a stretch - right - hehe) but not just sisters, they were going to pretend to be rich sisters who lived in a "big house with a media room and everything"!  This was when we heard Lizzie pipe up and say, "yeah but we believe in God."  To which Em replied, "yes, we are rich but we go to church and believe in God."

Now, don't get me wrong, I don't think "being rich" is sinful.  I mean I still fill out my Publisher's Clearing House but during Hubby's unemployment, we read a lot from the Bible about money and lack thereof.
Verses like:

Matthew 6:24

“No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money. 
Hebrews 13:5

 Keep your life free from love of money, and be content with what you have, for he has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” 


Luke 6:20-21

And he lifted up his eyes on his disciples, and said: “Blessed are you who are poor, for yours is the kingdom of God. “Blessed are you who are hungry now, for you shall be satisfied. “Blessed are you who weep now, for you shall laugh. 


Matthew 19:23

Then Jesus said to his disciples, "I tell you the truth, it is hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven.

These precious bits of comfort and wisdom helped so much as we waited on Him and His plan and His provision for us and apparently

these 2 beautiful girls were listening and learning and soaking up His words and that is worth all of the struggle.

Joel 1:3

Tell it to your children, and let your children tell it to their children, and their children to the next generation.
