Yes this post has a theme: the letter S.
Sun: Every child in Aven's preschool class has been given a letter. They are making the classroom alphabet chart. He came home with a black sheet of construction paper and the assignment "S". After naming several "s" words he settled on SUN, mainly I think because he is so into the solar system lately.
-Pax worked on the Earth ;)-
And Ta Da--SUN!!
He was super proud to take it today.
Paxton was proud too.
And then they had to smell it. I have no idea why!
Star Wars: So all this solar system talk leads me to Star Wars. I just finished watching Episodes 1-3 (I know..where have I been?!) and I am really intrigued! Oh Anakin--so misunderstood ;) Although I knew he would turn out to be Darth Vadar (just ruined it for you if you have been living under a rock), but I was still rooting for him to turn away from the enticement of the dark side. Really made me think of our world and the struggle against selfish desires...(hold on I'm going deep)...the love of power and greed...the pursuit of evil against our souls. Which leads me to the next "S"...
Satan: Our pastor often speaks profound thoughts that have my mind turning for several days after a sermon, but this week I can not get this idea out of my head:
"If satan gets to your children, make sure he has to walk over your knees to get them."
Am I praying, FERVENTLY, for the souls and lives of my boys? Is my desire for them to grow into Godly men stronger than the evil one's constant assault on their souls? That's a harrowing thought as a parent. We have SUCH a responsibility!
Anyway, that's our letter of the day friends. What would your letter of the day be?
