Thanks to C.J.


I have got to have one of bestest grandsons in the entire world. This little boy would steal the heart of anyone. My daughter told me of his ten commandments theory while they were out to dinner.

 C.J. said,  "If you take a bite of mine I get to take a bite of yours, it's one of the ten commandments. "

How precious is that?

       While driving my son and grandson home from karate last night I recalled that conversation and
took full advantage of the moment.
"Boys, Tell me what you know about the ten commandments."
C.J.proudly rang out what he knew. Only it wasn't the ten commandments it was his Message of the Week Words from his Karate class,

" Respect"

I realize that these aren't the ten commandments but I got it. I got how a 6 year old boy would assume such words were from God. I smiled as we continued our talk. We drove down the road with a smile on my face knowing that words spoken can leave a positive taste in your mouth and a grin in your heart.

I took this as a lesson straight from God.

Philippians 4:8 NIV Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.

This weekend, as you feed into the lives of others, remember the words you speak, the ideas you have and the attitude you share do nourish the lives of others.

Thank  You , C.J., for teaching Granny a great lesson. I love you.
