Where in the World? (high-quality photos of members from around the globe)
I want to be able to peer into the brain of a child and see what is going on in there.
Recently I invited Isabella, our 2-year-old granddaughter, to get a book so Grandma could read her a story. As she left the room I said, “Bring a Sabbath book because today is Sabbath.”
She quickly went on her way. Her father and I did not see where she went and commented that we thought she could not really know the difference between what is a Sabbath book and what is not. We had previously selected her books and not much mention had been made of “Sabbath books.”
In moments she returned, carrying, ever so carefully, my heavy study Bible. She delivered it with her beaming smile. She stood so proudly before me. You can be certain that I positioned her on my lap and proceeded to show her my Bible, reading to her two simple texts from 1 John. Then she and I went to search out other Sabbath books for us to read together.
What has been stored in that little curly head? We have never had a conversation about Grandma’s Bible. She sees me in my
worship chair occasionally, but nothing more. I’ve simply not explained. What is being stored that I am unaware of? This experience was humbling, to say the least!
