I hear a whale in my dining room. My grandson busily draws whales in a special book he is making, complete with sound effects that he provides.
“This is the humpback whale. “Waaoaoooooooooooaoaoo, whiieeeeeaooooooo. Uhup. Let’s draw sharks. I think blacktip shark, a whale shark. Looks like they are going to be great friends.”
“The whale shark is the biggest fish ever.”
“You need a heading.”
Their creative juices flow as they draw and write together interspersed with my grandson’s spontaneous sound effects.
I also think back to church yesterday when the theme of the lesson centered on my life as a sermon to the lost. What do I show them?
My grandson’s sermon is about God’s wonderful creation of whales, sharks, and dolphins. He loves these creatures. His sister loves to help him create his books. He has written dozens now all about whales and dolphins.
I love hearing him teach about whales. He is fascinated by these creatures. I know one day he will become a marine biologist.
Meanwhile, my granddaughter is so sweet and helpful to him. She is my princess in making. She recently earned the Little Miss Abbeville title and will compete in the state pageant this summer.
Children are a blessing.
