Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the door frames of your houses and on your gates. Duet. 6: 6-9
I was in the bathroom this morning getting ready for work. Little A had just received this awesome birthday gift in the mail yesterday and had been busy playing with her when I heard a little knock on the bathroom door.
Her: Look what I made!
Me: Oh cool. What is that?
Her: It’s Elsa’s book!
Me (thinking): Neat. Why does that title sound so familiar?
Her: Look! It’s your book!
Sure enough Elsa of Erendelle was enjoying the same Richard Foster title I had been reading at the beach a few days ago. Do our kids really watch us that closely? Yep, they sure do.
