Wonders In God's Creation

 JJ and daddy went to the park this morning and came back with this pod.  It was as big as JJ's palm (1/3 of mine)!
We were all wondering what was inside.  JJ tried to break it apart with hands, but the shell was so hard that it would not budge.  She then tried to smash it against the computer table.  While the pod remained undamaged, the table did receive a few scratches.  Ummm, not a good idea.  Finally, I brought out the butter knife to crack it open.
The room was filled with oohs and ahhs as the seeds inside were revealed.  Who would have thought that inside the tough exterior shell were those fragile paper thin seeds?  They were light weight and as if they were "born with wings".   I could just image God's hand sending those seeds into the sky.  The girls blew on them gently and sure enough, they saw the seeds flying into the air.  As we have been studying the creation in Genesis, I could not help but marvel at the creativity of God and be in awe of our Creator.  This was no doubt, His handy work.

Date Time with JJ

One of the advantages of having many people in our house is that we get to create meaningful one-on-one time with each other.  Anytime that just two of our family members get to hang out alone is precious time.  Since JJ had always stayed at home with me, we went everywhere together--to her siblings' classes, to the library, to the market, to the shops, to the mommies' prayer meetings, and to my Bible study group.   It was not until the beginning of this year as I thought about her attending school in the fall that I realized that I needed to take her out just for fun.  We went to kiddie parks, zoos, and even Chuck E Cheese's and did as many silly things as we could think of.  Going on the photo booth was a first for JJ.  The pictures are now on our wall, reminding us the good times we had this year.  Kids do grow up too quickly.  I cherish the moments when I could take silly pictures with the kids before they are too cool to pose anymore.
