Fridays + Man Lunches = Faith in Action

Since we've been homeschooling, every Friday is what our boys call their "Man Lunch" with dad! Friday is Dan's day off and he takes the boys out to lunch every Friday.The boys look forward to spending coveted time with dad and Dan really enjoys getting to "talk" to them about life, what it means to be a man, and scripture. This Friday was a little different!
About three weeks ago, our sweet neighbor, Mr. Whitaker, 72, went home to be with the Lord. He was a precious pastor in our community, and the children loved playing in his driveway. We would talk now and then and the children would always talk to him when he was outside. It was very sad for the children when they learned of his death.
Today, at " the man lunch" Dan talked to the boys how the bible teaches us to take care of widows and orphans, and so the boys (and Bekah) put that faith into action. They raked, mowed, and cleaned Mrs. Whitakers yard. It took them all day, and they were so tired but Dan and I couldn't have been prouder! Our children... learning what the bible says... and then not just hearing it ... but doing it!
