Our mouths were filled with laughter,
our tongues with songs of joy.
Then it was said among the nations,
“The Lord has done great things for them.”
~Psalm 126:2 (NIV)
I asked my husband to write the blog this week, since I didn’t have any profound thoughts. He grimaced and said, “Why don’t you just write a funny story.”
When my oldest-son was two- or three-years-old, my husband showed him one of his goose call-ing-thing-a-ma-bobs*. After several detailed demonstrations and explanations on how to correctly blow into the goose call, my husband handed the call to our son. My son put the contraption to his lips and yelled, “Goose! Goose! Goose!” Then he turned and beamed at my husband, so proud of himself. And my husband was pretty proud too (and trying really hard not to laugh out loud).
Our children love so easily, and want so much to please us- even to be like us. What a gift they are!
God bless you and protect you. God fill your heart with peace, and your days with laughter and joy. In Jesus Name, Amen!
*I want to say “goose call” but that doesn’t seem right… but what else would they be called? You know, those loud noise makers that hunters use to call geese in?? Are they really just called a goose call? … I need to find my husband again.
