Remember this little activity that we did over a year ago?! Well, we pulled it out again to really review Quinn’s favorite verse…
A joyful heart is good medicine. But a
broken spirit dries up the bones.
I’d say that this was Quinn’s first Bible verse and the one that we reference the most often. If he’s grumpy or acting “like a 2 year old,” we’ll tell him to find his joyful heart, and he seems to soon straighten up. Oh how I love the power of God’s word! This is also his VERY favorite song on his Steve Green CD. He wants to sing it OVER and OVER. And, he has lately been doing the most precious thing. … He wants me to turn on the music in his room, and then he quickly runs to find the monitor so that he can lay on the floor in the living room or our bedroom and listen to his music through the speaker.
Also, this morning (ignore the jammies, bed head and dirty breakfast face!), I pulled out my “diaper bag camera” and recorded Quinn reviewing all of his verses. I’m sure this is one that only the grandparents will love…because it’s a little bit long…but, his sweet words and heart are priceless. I’m amazed at how he retains and is able to apply their meaning throughout our days!
