Wise Words

So today we went to the library to return books and just hang out.  When returning the books I realized that there were a lot of books I hadn’t read to Madeline and Tanner.  My husband Jeff does the bedtime routine mostly so he reads the stories.  I am always realizing that this time with my littles is short so I should take the time to read with them.  So today during bedtime we read The Kissing Hand.  It is a great book if you don’t know it.  My two kiddos snuggled up to me as I read and I thought to myself this is what it should be like.  I need to remember to spend time with them not sjust care for them.  Then it came time to read our devotional book.  My husband and I have joked that usually someone is yelling, spilling something or hitting their brother when we read the Bible.  It is not usually a sweet scene of Biblical truths being shared.  But tonight I thought just maybe I could share a little nugget of God’s truth to them that they would tuck away in their precious little hearts.  So the devotion was from Proverbs 10:31 A good person says wise things.  It talked about Zoe and Jack whispering wise words to each other.  It said that wise words are helpful, truthful and kind.  When I was finished reading Madeline nuzzled up to my ear to tell me a wise word or so I hoped.  In her sweetest little voice she said “Scary Poop!”  Really “SCARY POOP!”  I just looked at her paused and started to laugh.  What more can I do in all of these crazy moments that I get a front row seat to.  Hang in there Mamas!  Ending another crazy day here at the Grable’s house.

  1. So true. my goal everyday is to experience the whole spectrum of moments with my boys – sweet, mischievious, crazy, messy – because today will never happen again. Leave the laundry, dishes and dirty floor for a moment, my boys are only this age once but there will always be housework!
