Home Church

We got a call from our dear friends Jason and Jess on Sunday morning to come over and have home church since we each had 2 children with the pox. These are 3 of the 4 with the pox, Savannah, Ian, and Ruby. Honor slept through most of it and woke up at the end to eat. We are hoping Libby does not get them and they are hoping that Justice and Jake do get them. We arrived a little before 11 and had already told the children this was a time of worship, praise, and learning not time to play. They came in and immediately took their seats and started to read, (I love homeschooling) Then when Jason was ready they put down their books and listened to a lesson on the obedient Racabites. Don't worry I had never heard of them before either but, Jason did a great job explaining the story and answering questions.

We then sang some hymns. They were a joyful noise unto the LORD! I loved the sound of the children's voices, especially Jake since he knew the words really well and was not inhibited by others' opinions.

Libby slept through most of the service in Jessica's arms. It is so wonderful to see your own children safe in someone elses' arms and completely content.

At one point I had both Justice and Ruby on my lap and looked around the room at the 10 children that were there and I thought,"this is the best!" The children were able to participate in the service, ask questions, sit still, sing hymns, and glorify God. The friendship and fellowship were wonderful! Thanks guys for a great day.
