Generosity Of A Child

Hmm, doesn't this just look yummy?
My youngest little monkey decided to make mommy a delicious sandwich the other day.
I had been playing on the computer and he comes
tromping up the stairs to show me what a
 "Big Boy" he's become! 
 He then tells me " Aren't you hungry mommy?" "I made this especially for you."
Now, wouldn't that make you feel special??
I was, but then I thought what kind did he make me?
So, I had to inquire what was inside and this is what I found....
A sandwich made with applesauce, carrots, dill and parsley.
I was just so touched that he had me this special sandwich, that I had to take a picture of it.
I did try the sandwich (because I tell my boys all the time to try new things) and well.....
it was an interesting combination of flavors.  Not something I would make on a normal day to day snack, but I was thrilled to see that I have sparked a "want to learn" in his creativity of cooking.
And now..... He wants to cook with me all the time!!! (chuckles)
I love it when we get excited about something new in our daily lives.
 I love it when you see a spark in a child's imagination or creativity to want to learn new things.
My littlest monkey (as he's nicknamed) is inquiring all kinds of things right now and if I don't" Train him in the way he should go", then I might have lost that opportunity with him to Grow!
Just like if I don't encourage myself to learn and grow in God's Word, then I might wander onto another path and I don't want to do that either! 
God is my Protector and Provider and he wants what's best for Me!
I am so hungry for God Word. I want more of Him daily!
(However, between you and me... no more carrot sandwiches! Ha Ha!)
I hope this brought some laughter to your day!
Take Care!!
Trust in the Lord and do good;
dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture.
Delight yourself in the Lord
and he will give you the desires of your heart.
Psalms 37:3-4

Hi Amy! Oh, this is too precious. All I could think of is "Oh my aching teeth!" trying to bite through those carrots. You are such a good Mommie!

You are such an encourager, for your blog readers, and your little chef. I love it, and I know God does too.

Happy Monday!

Oh my goodness, this is so cute and so sweet. I think Marshall is full of creativity. The sandwich sounds kind of good.... and interesting. You never know what kind of new thing will be sparked out of something like this.
Loved the post Amy. Marie and I are here reading it together.
