Insta Friday and Stories

Sadler insisted on washing HIS hands after I changed his diaper!

I love watching my boys sleep, especially Sadler, he looks so calm and peaceful compared to the time I normally see him when he’s awake!

and while we’re on the topic of changing Bible stories, I found this to be quite funny,

a cheetah in the stable, who knew?!

This reminded me of another story I heard from one of his Sunday school teachers awhile back; while the teacher was the story of when Moses throws his staff down and it turns into a snake, Grayden piped in that he thought a lion would have been much cooler than a snake! I’m sure someday the staff-turned-snake will impress him more than it does now!

Robb and I at The Story Tour Thursday night.

In case you haven’t heard of The Story Tour it’s “a musical journey from Genesis to Revelation, featuring a full choir and orchestra with Casting Crowns’ Mark Hall, Jeremy Camp, Natalie Grant, Matthew West, Nichole Nordeman, and Selah.”

I love music and hearing the Bible stories through song was a really cool experience, especially while I’m wrapping up my reading of the entire Bible this year.

Such a fun night, thanks Scott and Stacey (and 5/3rd bank) for the tickets!

Hope you all had a great week, ours definitely had a Bible story theme too it. It’s made me think a lot about the Bible and what wonderful gift His Word is to us. Like I mentioned earlier, I started this year out with a goal to read the entire Bible by the end of 2012. I’ve gotten behind, then caught back up again time and time again, and I have to admit that at times it’s felt more like a chore than an honor to read the Word of God, but I have learned so much!

**I’d love it if you’d share your favorite Bible story and where its found, in the comments section! If you don’t know your favorite Bible story, or if you’re unfamiliar with the Bible maybe you’d enjoy reading through the comments and looking up the passages to read.

Did you use a reading plan for going thru the bible? I'm defiantly going to do this in 2013 and need some suggestions!

I used the one year chronological bible
I really like it, reads like one big story in order of when they happened!

Haha...let me guess, Grayden is in Mrs. Walters class? She told me the story and how she couldn't keep a straight face when trying to correct him :)

Nothing routine about that lab work. How often do you need that done? Also....were u born with your disease?

Kate said...

It's routine to me, I have it drawn at least every 3 months, sometime more if we're adjusting meds
Yes I was born with it.

This is my 5th year of reading thru the Bible in a year. I have done different plans (in fact, in 1 plan, the New T was read thru 2x). This was my 1st time using the chronological method. It is VERY different, yet I really enjoy it. I didn't have the Chron Bible, but a schedule of Bible readings. I think I am doing that way next year, too.

love the manager scene (I knew there was a cat in it..I'm a cat lover)...it looks like something my little one would do...kids are too funny but grow up so fast and yes, I have to agree watching them sleep is great too.

When I was about Grayden's age I added all my Sesame Street figurines to the nativity- I wanted them to all see Baby Jesus!
