In the last several months I've been doing a lot of reading, studying of the Scriptures and having conversations centered around having a Biblical theology of children.

And things are changing for me. Beliefs that I've held to all my life are being examined in light of a deeper, dare I hope, more mature understanding of what the Bible says about children.
What's really funny to me is that few years ago I tried to read one book in particular on this subject and had to just put it down. I told Rob that I knew and understood the individual words, but couldn't make sense of the sentences that had been strung together. It was like reading Greek or something.
But, lately? Lately, I've picked up that very same book again and while it's not a bright "Aha!" light bulb going off moment...there has been new illumination. Things I couldn't see before are now at least in somewhat sharper focus...the ideas and concepts a little clearer.
I'm growing in my faith, and this part of the path looks a little different than the part I've traveled before...but it's just as beautiful. And it's good here.
Here's in interesting quote I read today...
Something to think about as I go about cleaning and getting ready for our friends to arrive tomorrow night.
