For the past several years at Christmas, our family has written or drawn (depending on the age of the child) "What Christmas Means to Me."
This year was Little One's first time to re-tell the Christmas Story during school time. She told a hilarious version with her window clings, but we worked on some of the details since then. (Funny version here.) My eyes filled with tears as I looked at her pictures and saw evidence of her growing faith.
As I looked over her shoulder as she drew (she told me what to write, she's only 3 1/2), I was reminded of the command in Deuteronomy 6: 6 - 8.
And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise. You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes.
I'm so thankful as a homeschooling mom that I have the opportunity to speak truth (directly from God's word) to my children all day long. I feel very blessed when I see those very truths take root, blossom and bear fruit.
Have a blessed Monday!
