Well, we spent the day talking about God's love. An appropriate topic you see. Even Ellie girl joined in on the fun.
We also played with something new. Moon sand. SO much FUN!!!! I found these heart molds at the Airman's Attic on base and knew exactly what I wanted to use them for. While playing with the moon sand we talked about the heart mold and how in a way it's like God's love. The little hearts represent us, God's children, and we are all held together by the Father as one. Without His love everything tends to fall apart just as the moon sand does without a mold to hold it together. Get it? They did.
We also ate festive foods that fit the occasion as well. Of course you can't go wrong with heart shaped sandwiches I switched it up though. Instead of PB&J, I used cream cheese and strawberry jam. Here's what we talked about over lunch. God sent his only son, Jesus, to die for our sins . He poured out His blood (the jam) so that we could be washed white as snow (the cream cheese). There's No Greater Love. And then we ate. *smile*
All day we talked about love from the most on high.The day was fun. I've never discussed the topic of love so much in my life. I think their understanding of God's love is more firm than the day before. Something that makes any Moma happy I'm quite sure. I only hope that they really know how much they are loved not only by me but by the Lord. I can't wait till the next holiday to try and see how I can incorporate another lovely lesson into the festivity.
And then Daddy came home with an orchid for Moma. I think after last year, hes turned it into an ongoing tradition.
I'm definitely in LOVE.
