I always start my morning in the Word and journal. After breakfast with the family and getting the two oldest off to school, I realized it was time to revisit some books that have been collecting dust on the shelf for awhile. We had been using the NIV for our family devotions at the beginning of our homeschool day. With the older ones gone, I remembered it had been a long time since we had read through a children's Bible. The younger kids are really enjoying it. They know most of the stories, but a few are new. They beg me to keep reading every morning. After lunch we have another read aloud time. Again the realization that the younger ones wouldn't remember going through the little house books, caused me to reach for those coverless treasures. Always a good read. Grandpa's sled and the pig had us all laughing out loud. In the evening when the older kids are here, before bed we are reading The Hiding Place. I love good books.
