...coffee and the Bible...5:19 AM
We started a new tradition this week. Typically, most mornings finds us with breakfast and then I drink my coffee while reading the morning readings out loud to the kids. Gabe started to show interest in Gianna's Bible, but was frustrated that it "wasn't the whole story."
We had a few weeks where we were reading his new Bible (Christmas).
I told him that he could have a special drink (hot chocolate or chocolate milk) and we would read a few stories out of his Bible every morning.
He could hardly sleep with excitement.
The next morning, he bounded down stairs, ready for his drink and the Bible. It is a pretty advanced Bible, but he patiently sat through (and asked questions!!) the story of Jesus's burial, resurrection, Jesus's Baptism, Elijah, Daniel, David and Goliath, Daniel, and Daniel.
He was so proud of being "like you, mom. It is kind of like coffee."
I have no idea how long this will last, but I love it!!
