finger paints!

I love doing things with kids. I especially love being apart of creativity. There is something about the arts that I think opens up the mind. It's ok to get a little dirty..

So have fun and enjoy the little ones.
This was Malachi's first time with paint. He hates being dirty and freaks out with there is anything on his hands. But I think I helped him break out of that even if it was just for a day ;)

Public Declaration; I NO longer believe in falling/being in love: As I was walking to work this morning I was convicted and reproved for ignorantly believing that I could "fall in love". Love is NOT something you fall into; this pulsing truth wouldn't silence. Now, you can imagine how I felt as the conviction in my heart arose; slightly defensive because certainly I've been defining love properly, right? So, I decided that it was my responsibility to pierce into the Word of my Father, and search to see if this concept of "falling in love" or "being in love" is something that I should indeed attach my life to. Now, it was to my surprise that this concept of emotional intoxication that motivates the lips to part and the tongue to say "I'm in love" is NOWHERE to be found!
