gather together

Each week we pick a night to worship together and read the Bible. The boys (and the daddy) play their guitars with me as we sing "Jesus Loves Me" (the ALL TIME favourite), and then they put down their instruments so that they can sing the remaining songs with me.

After a worship time we read out of the Bible, this year we are learning more about the fruits of the spirit. January is the Love month, we learn about how God loves, how we need to love and pray that God would help us love. Both B and I have felt God leading us to seek the fruits of the spirit much more seriously. The boys love learning about the fruits. These are sweet times we get to spend together.

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against which there is no law.
Galatians 5:22-23

This is such a sweet family moment. I love guitars and am positively obsessed with it. I had joined a guitar class but couldn't go regularly because of time constraints.

Seriously, reading about my my family in this way really blesses me.
