Hebrews 12:1-2
"...let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us. Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfector of our faith..."

Waka Waka Party Time

Goodness, aren't these the cutest little faces!  I love looking into the eyes of our boys...especially when they hold eye contact.  I take their face in my hands and say, "Look at mom, please."  I ask them to do this constantly...when I am tell them how much I love them, when I correct them, when I praise them, when I discipline them, when they want to tell me something, when they ask me for something...and on and on.  I am trying to teach them by gazing into my eyes, that I am trustworthy.  It is important.  It is critical...for I will know that when I have their eyes, without prompting, that I then have captured their heart.

Our house is now loud...with lots of laughter.  The boys treat each day as if it were one party after another.  Here they are dancing to Waka Waka.  And yes, they came home from Africa already knowing the dance moves!
