Saturated Sponge

Wow today has been all about Church, Bible reading, and learning about Gods word. It has been a GREAT day, but I feel like a saturated sponge. My head is so full if I lean my head to the side something might fall out. Just kidding I would have to tap on the other side of my head for that to happen.
I finished the book I have been reading, some might laugh if they knew what that book was, but it was a great place for me to start. This book has a cool story that I want to share. I had a patient that I was taking care of back in March of 2005 and she gave my kids a children's bible stories book and after I brought it home it quickly vanished into the abyss of their room not to be seen for 2 years. When my boys started going to Sunday school their teacher would give them an extra star if they brought their bible. Patrick found the bible stories book and brought it to me. It was in perfect condition, like it had never been opened, and the way these two boys are with books that was a miracle it had all its pages and no crayon or marker all over it. Well to make a long story short they never did take this book to church because before the next Sunday rolled around they both had brand new bibles in the plastic. Wonder where those came from? (Thanks you two) Patrick would not open his until Sunday morning, it was so cute. Now they never leave the house to go to church without them. Anyway back to the book. I started reading at least one story to the boys every night before they went to bed and in between I would read without them. It has been so cool to find the little things that this wonderful woman wrote in the pages of this book. I plan to try and find this woman this week, she has lost her husband since I last saw her and I don't know where she is, but she used to tell me every week that my boys needed to be in church and that they needed to have a good foundation in Christ. It just proves to me that God has had his eye on us for a long time. Kinda like the lost sheep story I was reading to the kids last night. Makes me cry tears of joy just thinking about it.....
