I'm pretty sure I can pinpoint the exact day this scripture became his favorite. He had been very patient with his younger sister who was pestering him but then he got mad and pushed her. We do not allow pushing or hitting etc, which is a rule even the parents follow, so I had him follow me into my bedroom where I then opened up to this scripture and told him that those feelings of anger he had, and wanting to push or hurt his sister were our 'natural man' feelings and we have them because we are physical beings but that Christ asks us to put off those 'natural man' feelings and become like Him. He is amazing and is continually improving himself and becoming more like Christ so I'm not at all surprised that he chose this scripture to be his favorite.
My parents and Scott's dad were all able to fly out for the baptism which was very special. They arrived a couple of nights before and we loved spending time with them. Mom played Candyland with Jane and Nora. She later commented that she'd, "never played it that way before!" Well, that's a three and one-year-old for you! :)
Before the baptism we took our parents out do dinner at one of our favorite places to eat around here. A favorite but one we try not to have often because it's an Italian buffet and we way over eat. It's called Cinzetti's. It's amazing; I especially love the salads, pizza and the crepes! See what I mean!?
