Truth or fiction?

So I had one of those moments last night.
Come on, you know...

You're in a new place and you are surrounded by your children. There are strangers all around that you are secretly hoping are impressed with how well you handle your 5 boys.

"Pop!" goes the bubble and you catch one of your darling children doing something embarrassingly stupid.
Yes, Stupid! There I said it.

There I was sitting with my squirming 5 year old, when I lovingly glance at my almost 7 year old.
You put a tie wrap around your neck???!!!
A Tie wrap!

Do you believe the Bible is full of truth, or are you one of those people that believes its just a good read?
Me? The Bible is absolute truth, the inspired word of God...

The Bible says in Prov 22:15,
"Foolishness is bound up in the heart of a child..."

Boy did God know what He was talking about or what?
Who, in there right mind puts a tie wrap around their neck?
And why on earth would they do it in public?

This is the Moment

On the day before he turned 5 my littlest was so excited he could hardly contain himself.
He put on dress pants, a shirt, and a tie and walked around with a huge grin on his face.
He could not believe he was almost 5!
The first few days of being 5 have been exciting.
He has begged me to start teaching him since his kindergarten materials are neatly being added to his little shelf for school.
Life is great. He has a lifetime in front of him and yet he fully embraces each moment.

Reminder to self:
Life is great. I only think I have a lifetime in front of me, live life to its fullest today.
Be excited to learn. Today is the day to spark my brain.
Anticipate good things, but live in the moment.
Eat on the "good" dishes, wear that dress, do my hair fancy just because, kiss my husband often, hug my children...
Be so full of the love of the Lord that I can hardly contain myself...
