The boys groaned as I said, "Let's all go outside for our 4th of July picture!" We only started this when we got Chloe last year - seems to add new meaning to being an American to us. SO - we all headed outside and I told them that if they cooperated then we could be done quickly - it wasn't them we had to worry about!!! Chloe had her own ideas - don't give a two year old a flag and expect her to hold it nicely, not to poke her brother's eyes out, or to keep the end out of her nose!! I'm sure the neighbors enjoyed our photo shoot - we all were laughing when it was over though!!
When you are harvesting your crops and forget to bring in a bundle of grain from your field, don't go back to get it. Leave it for the foreigners, orphans and widows. Then the LORD your God will bless you in all you do.
