Where Bubba Lives

Since last summer the kids and I have been keeping journals together.  Let me be quick to say that we have not done this every day since last summer, oh no; we have done this 21 times since last summer.  I will write a verse in all the journals in the evening and the next day we’ll sit down together.  Bubba will read the verse first and then Little will read it through.  Lastly I will read it phrase by phrase and KB will repeat after me.  Next we take out the crayons and draw a picture that illustrates what God is teaching us through His word.

Yesterday the verse was 2 Corinthians 5:17 and this was Bubba’s page:


Usually we go around and share what we’ve drawn and explain it. . . so that I will know just WHAT the picture is, in some cases, and so I can make sure they hear the message one last time from me.  Before KB or I could finish our pictures Bubba turned his around and this is what he said,

“I used to live on that mountain of sin, but Jesus died and I am all new.  I will never have to live there again.”

Yep.  Seriously.  (If you don’t leave an AMEN in the comments, you’re just wrong!)
What a joy to hear my little man put the Gospel into his own words. Thank you, Jesus, for being at work in his little heart. Hallelujah, What a Savior.

    Even a little child will lead them….some children are BIG men in their understanding. Pop says HELLO from Busan, South Korea

    Sometimes when we don’t even know it…. and even when we may know it… God takes the simplest things to send a message far and wide and confound the world. Such is this witness to His grace!

    it does feel like a mountain, doesn’t it? how good is His grace–and how precious coming from the mouths of our children, hey? love you.

    Yet, another reason I think we should go ahead and arrange a marriage between Bubba and my C. He could share the gospel with her all the time! 🙂
