Here is Jim speaking to the high school economics classes.
In the afternoon, he visited Joshua’s class and showed them 160 slides from his trip to Israel. Jim did a great job connecting each picture with an event from the Bible with which the children are familiar. The children asked great questions!
We served snacks that were representative of foods indigenous to Israel, such as oranges, figs and bananas.
Bringing Daddy to school was the best Show-N-Tell our cherubs could ever want! He is their hero. Mine, too. I just heart my little family!
Yesterday morning we read some verses from Psalm 16 for our devotion time with the children. The verses seem suitable for this post. Smiles.
“I said to the LORD, ‘You are my Lord; apart from you I have no good thing.” LORD, you have assigned me my portion and my cup; You have made my lot secure. The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; surely I have a delightful inheritance.”
Isn’t the gift of a hard working, believing father such a blessing? Whenever I think of my husband and his work Proverbs 22:29 comes to mind “Do you see a man who excels in his work? He will stand before kings; He will not stand before unknown men.” My God knows him and sees his work, and I know He will reward him for it. Truly, we are blessed to be the wives of such God loving men. Your post served as a reminder of that. I pray God would continue to use your words to bless others.
Ok call me silly!
But I’m sitting here bawling.
I guess I know what days like this mean to a child.
That is just precious Sharon.
The children will never forget that and only God knows the little child or teenage one that will be touched forever by Jim’s diligence and obedience to our God!
I love it!
Blessings to your precious family!
Love and hugs,

Thank you, this really touched my heart. It was a pleasure spending the day with the kids, and it’s even more of a pleasure being your husband and their father. I love you all.
