I am going to wrap up this precious Holy Week by sharing what I bought my kids for Easter. I have been longing to give my kids their own bible. They are finally at an age where they are fairly able to read and understand its content, and I wanted them to have a special hand- picked, engraved bible from us. I searched and searched through countless styles, translations, age groupings, and eventually found two of the most perfect bibles for each of my kids! I envisioned these Holy Books years from now, worn and withered pages that had been sifted through over and over again… I picture the highlights and scribble from diving deep into study through their ever-flowing seasons of life… I dream of them still holding those precious bibles when they are grown and sharing His Truth with their own children.
There is no greater tangible gift I could give them.
After a long busy weekend, we finally arrived home to shower off the full day starting with an all church Easter breakfast, service and then we met the kids at Grandma and Grandpa’s farm. We spent the remainder of the day out by the creek, up on a hill flying down a make shift zip line in the forest, journeying through a treasure hunt up on the hill and down through the woods. I soaked in the sight of Cassidy with grandma’s sun hat on while gardening and planting with her Aunt Char, and of course there was cooking and feasting! We got home late, and in our exhaustion, we nestled the kids in the family room to give them their gifts… They were THRILLED! Cade was so excited to have his first ‘real bible’ that he suggested they read their new bibles “right NOW together!”
Why yes my precious boy, let’s do that…
