I just read Bible Gateway’s Verse of the day — what a great verse this is, I love it.
children, how much more will your Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit
to those who ask him!”- Luke 11:13
How true is that!? I love to bless my children. Whether it is a toy, a special dessert/treat, etc, they get so happy and I’m blessed to bless them. These things are very little things but mean so much to them. How much MORE will our Father in Heaven bless us with the Holy Spirit–the best ‘thing’ He can give us!
The other day, Jeremiah and I were working in our garden and he says “Mama, I love you.” And I smiled and asked “Why?” He said, “for the garden.” He loves the garden. He is learning responsibility–he helps me water it and pull grass/weeds up. He is proud of the vegetables that are growing and is learning about how they grow and get bigger until we can pick them to eat. BUT more than the garden, it is a chance for us to spend time together. I teach him and show him what is growing. He gets to help me. And we’re spending that time together, just him and me. And I knew all this when he told me “Mama, I love you…for the garden.” It just made me smile because I could see what was important to him.
