Baby sitting alone back to the world, looking at his book
Watching him poke the train off the end of the bridge over and over
baby looking intently at his feet when I put shoes on him for the first time

Discovering in a deeper way, God’s covenant love
The difference eliminating activity choices made just for the baby! I watched him actively play with a few things, and happily sit in his little chair looking at a few books as well.
A living room that really feels like a living room

3 boys on the couch having their own school time with various learning toys
Being momentarily without my daily mass readings booklet, teaching the boys how to look things up in the bible
A lesson on left and right
From a distance, catching the boys talking through my portable shower hose
2 very silly clowns
Baby with his first banana still in the peel
An opportunity to proclaim the truth, where it is greatly needed

Soft fur and an open hand empty to fill: Praying this morning and feeling soft fur as baby placed a bear in my open hand
One on one story time with the baby while everyone else was sleeping.

Our crocodile game – (kids) – baby is a crocodile so they run away form him – they all loved it
Possible opportunity to reach out – Once you’re willing to go and lead others, God will send them to you

His little head sound asleep on my shoulder, minutes after I had picked him up
Out of the blue, a moment caught up in the Spirit as I said grace before supper.

Watching baby walk around the sanctuary(?) with rapt attention during the consecration (he really is drawn to it, it’s beautiful to watch, what a gift!)
the kids with sphero
watching her little baby wiggle when shown a picture of herself

3d glasses and dreamworks
A Pink daisy sleeper and spiky hair
baby way up the ladder
Abominable baby walking around outside in his snowsuit

Coming together again around the circle with many of our parish faith study ladies
Helping to share more of God’s truths with others
God speaking through someone else’s words, but directly to me
