Sweet Boy

This last Sunday I taught Sunday School and we learned about the widow who gave her two mites to God. She gave all the money she had and God was very pleased ( I said happy in class) because she gave with a cheerful heart. I only had Benny and Asher in class-sickness is going around-but Benny really took this lesson to heart. When we got home he went and got his piggy bank and asked Joe, "Daddy can I give all my money to Jesus when we go to church again?" We both almost started crying, he was so sweet and`so sincere. And yesterday Joe took Benny to the store and gave him the change from his purchase. Benny said, " Oh good, now I have more money to give to Jesus."
I am so thankful for this boy.

You and Joe and such a great example of sacrificial giving, he has great role models.

Ah, I love that. I have always been so touched by those who are generous, and I can't help but think that the Lord is moved by that kind of attitude too. It is neat to see how Ben is growing up!

He really is pretty great! :) My favorite 3 year old nephew, even! (I had to run through the list to make sure I was allowed to say that!!)
