Today was the first day of Vacation Bible School. While he was a little on the young side, Anders was allowed to go. He was quite excited. I think part of it is the fact that the word "School" is in the title. He's all about becoming more and more of a "big boy." And it helps that "Bible" is in the title as well.
Here he is heading out the door this morning, with his Bible in his backpack. He had some trouble sitting and listening (well, even just sitting--I had to be with him most of the time). But really, for a 3-year-old, he did very well. And though it didn't seem like he probably caught most of the lessons, he actually had the memory verse (John 10:11) down fairly well.
Somewhere along the way it seems like we loose our passion for God and His word. Couldn't we all have a 3-year-old faith? Anders spends his days playing Joshua and The Battle of Jericho. He sings his praise songs throughout the day. He quotes things from Veggie Tales or Sunday School. And he's learning his Bible verses. He'll be showing me up pretty soon. Another reminder to grab onto having faith like a child.
