It Is Funny How...

much like Adam and I our kids are. If anyone doesn't think God hand picked them for our family they clearly don't know our family very well. 
Pierson wants to "help people" just like his Daddy. He thinks carrying nails in his pocket is super cool. He lives to serve. I know all too soon he will be a proud CCC staff person. Being a disciple of Jesus, carrying a hammer in his pocket along with directions to the next "person in need"'s house.
He takes things seriously just like his Daddy too. He is a problem solver. When he does something (other than playing a superhero) he takes great care and plans it out to make sure it is done just right. I love to watch the wheels turning in that little head of his! 

 Maylin likes to help people too, however her first passion is art! Chalk, paint, crayon, pencil, pen, marker, glue... it doesn't matter. If you can make something with it she is in love with it. From the perspective of a biased art teacher/Mommy she is pretty darn good at it too!
Maylin skips through life. She is a little happy-go-lucky. She definitely jumps before she looks to see how high the cliff is. Planning isn't her forte.  ...I don't know anyone else who fits these descriptions. Do you? ;)  Every once in a while there is a bit of drama, but mostly she hops her way through the rain cloud to the ray of sunshine on the other side.  

"Not flesh of my flesh, nor bone of my bone,
but still miraculously my own.
Never forget for a single minute,
you didn't grow under my heart but in it."

Sweet, sweet poem! Love your observations of them!

Oh how I understand believing to the core of my being that my children were hand-picked by our Heavenly Father to grow up in my home!
And a bit of drama? Who does that reflect... ;)

Love you guys!

Was so neat that when Pierson and Maylin had finished with their carpentry projects - one was a cross. Pierson told me that was how Jesus died for us. Amen! They are absorbing so much from their parents and their entire Christian community. What a blessing!
