Hey there, not feeling so hot today but I have to share a little of my life with a 2 year old. I wear a cross around my neck on very many occassions and even in my everyday mama, laundry-doing, grocery-shopping day to day life. I have come to treasure this cross and I am learning more and more about Jesus and how He died for each of us. So, as I wore my necklace yesterday, Addison (our 2 year old) grabs it as I was carrying him and says "starfish?" And I said "no, it is a cross so Mommy remembers what Jesus did for us." And he repeated "cross" and "Jesus" a few times and that was it for yesterday. Then again today he was looking at my neck and saying "starfish." Haha, oh he is too precious. How simple life is in the eyes of a child, don't you think?

In my "word" reading today I was led to Romans 7 in my Study Bible:

"What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God - through Jesus Christ our Lord!` Romans 7: 24-25 In talking about the power of sin...Jesus is the only one who can empower us to live according to God`s will. If we try to live in our own power, we die. Jesus is the life.
