Mommy Notes: Serving Him

 photo familyphoto1_zps880324eb.jpg

This Mommy Notes is specifically for my boy. That red head of mine who knows way beyond his nine years. This boy desperately wants an Xbox...mainly because he is obsessed with Mine Craft. He knows though it is way out of this mamas budget and Santa's too. Oh have I mentioned my littles are already thinking about Christmas? They're so stinkin exited and Miss Priss cannot wait until I put out the Christmas decor. I'm not sure how long I'll be able to hold her off, but that's for another post in itself. Back to the boy and his yearning for an Xbox. We had a nice discussion about the true meaning of Christmas...a discussion my children know all too well. We never want them to get caught up in the "I need presents" attitude that can be captured by many kids and adults alike. I am guilty of it myself, as I know we all can be at times. Well after teeth were brushed and munchkins were getting ready to say prayers, that boy of mine looked at me and asked me a question...."Mom do you know why we're here on this Earth?"...... I asked "What are we hear for?".... I honestly thought he was going to give me a silly answer, but very seriously he replied "to serve God". Oh my goodness this boy just makes me want to hug him and keep him in my pocket forever because he truly is a treasure. He gets it and is such an amazing example to me. We talked some more and shared some snuggles. I am thankful for the reminder tonight I was given to simply serve God. Well put Bubba...well put. It is something we all need to do...all year long. Serve Him and love Him. Give Him our hearts. It is the one gift we can truly give Him. Know that through God's grace, we can be saved and can live together with our families forever. Thank you Bubba for always being a shinning example of Christ. I love you to the moon and back son. I want to keep you always.

  1. I am always so amazed and in awe when a child says something so profound. They are much smarter and wiser than we give them credit for sometimes!

  2. what a sweet boy!

    My girls wanted a Wii for Christmas a few years back. Out of our budget. Those two were so determined they saved up -we pitched in at the end- and bought one themselves. They really appreciated it!

  3. Kids always seem to have a way of putting things into perspective and making us stop for a moment. What a great kid! And I'm with you on the Christmas d├ęcor...both my sisters have theirs up already! I can't give in to peer pressure this year! I've promised myself it's only candles until the day after Thanksgiving. We'll see how long that holds up lol.

  4. That little boy has a good mama who teaches him well.

  5. You know you can get Minecraft for a laptop/PC which you probably already have. It's pretty cheap and the game has some amazing educational qualities - even some schools are using it! My 9 year old has learned all about atomic and nuclear energy solely from Minecraft!

  6. I read your blog each week and think you and your family are just lovely. My son too wanted an xbox and we just couldn't afford it. It turns out you can buy it for your home computer! He plays it weekly and it was so much cheaper than buying an xbox. It is 26.95, I don't know what your Christmas budget looks like but it is a much cheaper option to play the same game. I hope it helps you!

  7. I agree with Debbie. He is being taught well. Hearing either of my kids say something like this would be all the gift this mama needed. :-)
