the storyteller

Grey could sit and listen to us read The Jesus Storybook Bible for at least 45 minutes at a time. We gave it to him last Easter knowing that he would grow into being able to sit and listen to the rather long "stories." Well, he has reached that point sooner than I thought and I am loving it. When Tucker goes down for his morning nap, Grey goes upstairs and gets his Bible. We snuggle on the couch and I read and read and read. 

Grey has always loved to be read to and can memorize the words quickly. He is very quick to correct ANY word that you may have confused. He is always very particular about which story we read and in what order. I pretty much always end up in tears from reading to him from the above mentioned Bible. It's simpleness of the TRUTH that gets me every time. It sparks really great conversation for us and I am able to use the "stories" (which I always stress to him, they are true) in our everyday life. What a blessing this Bible has been to us! 

Grey has started using his imagination more and more. I love watching it develop. One particular morning last week he was playing in our bathroom in the empty tub and acting out the story of Noah and mixed in a little Joshua and the Battle of Jericho. It was quite entertaining so I caught a little on camera. He was obviously very into the stories! 

I pray the truth of who God is in each story would take root in his heart and blossom into salvation one day.
