Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honor.
(Romans 12:10 ESV)
It’s one of those days that shows scripture in action. And I love that it’s being shown by my kids. My youngest, sick with the viral bug I had two weeks ago (and still lingers), has been a snotty, coughing, froggy-voiced mess. Depending upon the medications in his system or the fever, he fluctuates from having energy to play or curled up like a slug staring aimlessly off into space. After breakfast, I found him slug-like on the floor. Wrapping him up and taking advantage of the brief chance to cuddle him, I decided that a trip to Redbox for a few movies would make for a good sick at home day. While I was gone, my oldest two decided that to help Jake feel better, they would build him a great train track so he could play it when he felt better and watch it when he didn’t. My living room is a disaster with their efforts, but seeing the smile on Jake’s face while he goes from watching his Thomas movie to playing with the trains is more than worth a clean room.
