we snuggled into story time together,
cass & i,
and i thought we would simply have some quality cuddling while accomplishing her daily reading goal.

the Lord had another idea.

as we turned the page to this picture:

my sweet child said, 'oh mommy, that looks like you!  she has her coffee, she's reading her bible in the morning... just like you!'

my heart skipped a little beat of praise and thanksgiving 
for this child has started more days of her six and a half years NOT seeing her mom
with her coffee...
reading her bible...
and yet, she still identified the picture with me.

talk about a kick-in-the-pants!

i never, NEVER want that image to change.
as she grows, the more she sees me like this,
the more she'll assume it is
to be that kind of woman.

what a lovely way to be reminded!

Deuteronomy 6:5-7

New Living Translation (NLT)
5 And you must love the LORD your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your strength. 6 And you must commit yourselves wholeheartedly to these commands that I am giving you today. 7 Repeat them again and again to your children. Talk about them when you are at home and when you are on the road, when you are going to bed and when you are getting up.
