Luke 18:15-17 (The Message)
People brought babies to Jesus, hoping he might touch them. When the disciples saw it, they shooed them off. Jesus called them back. "Let these children alone. Don't get between them and me. These children are the kingdom's pride and joy. Mark this: Unless you accept God's kingdom in the simplicity of a child, you'll never get in."
Never so much as imagined anything quite like it—
What God has arranged for those who love him.
But you've seen and heard it because God by his Spirit has brought it all out into the open before you. 1 Cor 2:9-10 (The Message)

Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love. 1 John 4:8
May my stories, my songs, my discipline, my play, my work - point them toward Him who is Love. May I teach Love this day. Give them hearts to perceive You, even in their youth. Woo them to yourself. Because your Love is better than life.

Now Judah walks to the window and just points, begging to go outside. Little does he understand single digit temps and biting winds are not kind to little fingers and toes. Spring is coming, sweet boy. Until then, we'll rest in the pace of the season of slumber. When the all the earth sleeps beneath blankets of lace, waiting. We'll chose to embrace the lessons of this season, inhale the beauty of stillness, togetherness. And wait with expectation for the awakening.

The powder blue skies and the crisp air awoke the adventure in Judah like I have never seen. He was like a caged animal, just set free into the wide blue yonder.
Papaw has a lot of birds - cardinals, blue jays, woodpeckers, yellow ones, oriels, chickadees, (I obviously don't have the years of teaching that Aron does as I can't even think of their proper names or the plethora of species he and his dad can spot.) Apparently, if you feed them, they will come. So Belle made papaw some adorable little bird feeder ornaments for Christmas. Here they are hanging them out for papaw's birds.
