Pilgrim Preacher

Today Daddy & Mama (and Denbigh) attended the Thanksgiving Lunch at Joseph's school.  Before the lunch began Joseph's class entertained us with several skits and songs.  Joseph's self-confidence has come a long way in the last year and he did a great job with his part as a pilgrim in a skit.  He was also one of the three students chosen to read from their journals about "If I Were A Turkey."  But our favorite moment was when it was his turn to read "What I Am Thankful For."

Unfortunately Mama had a technical difficulty with the camera at this crucial moment and all she recorded was the parents' response to what he said.  But here is the transcript:
"What I am thankful for: I am thankful that Jesus died on the cross for our sins."

Daddy and Mama agreed that is was our proudest moment of the day.  When we sat down at lunch the people at our table thanked Joseph for bringing the sermon and later one of the other moms stopped me in the hall and told me that her husband referred to Joseph as the "Pilgrim Preacher."

What Daddy & Mama are thankful for this season? That our sweet babies love Jesus.
