The kids and I started reading The Jesus Storybook Bible today. They've read it before - this is the first time for me. From the outside it appears to just be another kids' Bible. But inside it is filled with wonderful, insightful treasures. Here is a small part of what we read today:
"God breathed life into Adam and Eve. He loved them with all of his heart. And they were lovely because he loved them."
...lovely because he loved them. For no other reason. Not earned. Not bought. Lovely because he loved them. I needed to hear that today.
