“A child must know that time spent together for answering his or her questions and for explaining the Bible, reading Bible stores, or studying in some way together is considered by you as important as any of the other things you do”. What Is A Family? by Edith Schaeffer
This morning my youngest daughter showed me her card out of her box of things to do, entitled “Bible study with Mom”. I told her we would do it after lunch time. But this afternoon I allowed busyness to creep in…I became preoccupied with other things…and then I had some errands to do as Bill was going to be late in coming home. When I got home, dinner would need to be prepared…and I would have forgotten. But she didn’t ~ she was waiting for her Bible study time with me. So I told her we could do it right then and she quickly got the Bible study book and our Bibles and a pencil and took them to our favorite spot where we like to do our Bible study. And what a precious time we had together…and what a precious time I could have so easily missed!
I’m so glad that I slowed down for what was really important! ♥

Wishing you a simple, slow-paced day filled with the peace and blessings of God!
