Brotherly Love

Something I am really enjoying about my boys right now is that finally at ages 4 and 2, they are really beginning to play with each other. It's so cute to watch, especially when they don't know I'm watching. I love to hear Colie say, "Tank-ooo, Bubba", when Jackson does something nice. I love to see them hug and kiss each other. I love to see Jack help Cole when Cole can't quite get the hang of something. It's like they are really starting to become friends. This gives me such joy and it makes me feel like I've done something right. After all, my children are a direct reflection of Jon and I. However, sometimes I'm more proud of this reflection than other times.
I think about when I was pregnant with Cole...I wanted a girl so badly. I am so thankful God gave me another little boy because I know they will be friends for life. I love my boys. I love the way they love their mommy. I love to see them wrestle with their daddy. I love to see them play with trucks and trains and listen to all the sound effects they can make with just their mouths. You will never see a little girl do this! Secretly, I love the dirtiness and grossness too. It makes me laugh. Thank you God for little boys.

Two are better than one,
because they have a good return for their work:
If one falls down,
his friend can help him up.
But pity the man who falls
and has no one to help him up!
Ecclesiates 4:9-10

Follow God’s example in everything you do just as much loved child imitates his father. Be full of love for others, following the example of Christ who loved you and gave himself to God as a sacrifice to take away your sins. And God was pleased, for Christ’s love for you was like sweet perfume to him. Ephesians 5: 1-2 TLB
