Pretty Important Verse for These Days

Josh made a great point about Genesis 1:27.  He said it is likely the most important verse for our kids to memorize and understand in this day and age. “God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.” Genesis 1:27 The whole “man using the ladies restroom” business because they identify as a woman is weird and strange and potentially quite dangerous, AND YET, the bigger issue is that it speaks of rebellion against God’s authority.  They are rebelling against how God made them.  They think they know better than God. “God saw all that He had made, and behold, it was very good.” Genesis 1:31 So in a world that seems very much upside down and backwards, I want my kids to know that God knows best—always.  He is good and what He does is good.  I can trust Him and His ways. “For you formed my inward parts; You wove me together in my mother’s womb.  I will give thanks to You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Wonderful are your works, and my soul knows it very well.  My frame was not hidden from You, When I was made in secret, and skillfully wrought in the depths of the earth; Your eyes have see my unformed substance; and in Your book were all written the days that were ordained for me, when as yet there […]

He bought some red converse with birthday money from Sweetie and PawPaw.  We found what was making such a horrible smell in my kitchen–a leaking, broken disposal.  ICK!  Thankfully, it got taken care of! It was quite nasty. We met friends at a park for lunch and playing.  We stopped in at Old Navy and Kohls one morning and bought a few spring/summer clothing items.  I did laundry. I mopped! We washed the car.  Bahama Bucks called our name one time  (It called the kids’ names many times, but I only heard it once). There was a lot of jumping on the trampoline.
