And He said to me, My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.

Noah's "Man Jewelery".......

 I guess I should never be surprised by my Noah. He has so many sides to many ways he chooses to express himself.

He's beautiful and creative and as he is growing older I am appreciating his need for artistic outlets in different ways every day.

Some days he draws, on other days he is taking photos, or perhaps he has us all sit an listen to a song that he has written and plays on his guitar.

He'll go through a period where he will write short stories with his own illustrations. And there are days when he makes up a movie and wants us all to watch him perform.

On this particular day, Noah wanted to make jewelery....."man jewelery" he called it...which made me smile.

And he did it. Grabbed my beading bag, picked out his colors. His eyes lit up when I showed him the arrow head that I have had for quite some time. He thought it was perfect.

With some minimal help from me, he was extremely pleased with the finished piece. He went to the mirror to take a look....I am smiling just thinking about his face.

I so enjoy spending time with my Noah. I am thankful for his life and that I am a prominent part of it. After all, we get to hang out all day every day together.

I love watching him mature....growing into a young man. I know, I know he's only seven. But there are some days he seems older than his years. 

He is my sweet boy laying on the floor making sound effects as he is playing with his star wars guys....and the next minute he is reading to his brothers and sister or leading prayer during our family devotions.

I could go on. I am not implying in anyway that he is flawless, in fact his argumentative nature gets him heaps of trouble on most days....but God is doing a mighty work in his heart and it is a blessing to watch this process.
