One of the worlds newest bipeds! 🙂
Ben is walking.
I took this shot as he toddled towards me, I LOVE the expression on his face. It says it all:
I can do this! I am determined to get there! Just a couple more steps…
I just love how you can see that there is plan..
I don’t know if all kids are like this, but when I watch my kids play, it seem that there is always a plan in their minds. I don’t always know what it is, but I do know that they are thinking and carefully trying to make something happen. A line of dolls in a row, the carefully aimed roll of a ball, a face in the play dough…
And in my kids I see the thumb print of their creator, no not their dad (though he always has a plan too) and certainly not their mom (so not a planner), but their God–creator of all. He has a plan. Always, He has a plan. Nothing is random. Nothing is just by chance or coincidence he is in all things working. Here are some truths about God’s plans:
the plan of salvation
Jeremiah 29:11 (New International Version)
11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
10For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. (Eph 2:10)
