Sonidos Serranos

Sonidos Serranos: Sounds of the Sierras...
Reflecting some of my family's interests: God's wonderful creation (especially mountains and hills!), music, and language...

Psalm 121:1-2 (NASB)

I will lift up my eyes to the mountains;
From where shall my help come?
My help comes from the LORD,
Who made heaven and earth.

“Practically Perfect in Every Way!”

In a conversation about the importance of developing good habits, struggling as adults with habits formed as children and so on, I confessed to E and DJ that I still struggle with habits formed early on.

“But!” I said. “Daddy’s practically perfect in every way!”

DJ protested: “But only people who are already in Heaven are perfect!”

He grinned, pleased to be showing that he had correct information. (JM and I couldn’t help smiling behind our coffee cups.) Before we could laugh out loud, DJ said with great sincerity and serious thoughtfulness:

“But Daddys pretty good, though!”

Truly a heartfelt compliment!

And this evening, as we were sharing another laugh over it all, I reminded JM to consider the (extremely frank and unsophisticated) source! This is the Little Man who confessed to me (in a conversation about sacrificial love) earlier this year:

“When I give you flowers, it’s because I don’t need them...”
