This morning we were reading from Genesis 29 when Jacob meets Rachel by the well. I made a connection back to Rebekah being found for Isaac near water, and then mentioned Jesus meeting the Samaritan woman by a well of water. Perhaps trying to make these bride and groom connections with a four and almost-three year old is a bit much, but I wanted to plant the seeds in the boys’ minds just the same. Thinking it would be funny, I jokingly told the boys they should go search for wives at a swimming pool… then I realized that might not be such a good idea. Toothily grinning at Deborah, I unsuccessfully attempted to hide behind my coffee mug.
It is a crisp morning. The sun and breeze are in the leaves, and there’s that scent in the air that let’s you know the long awaited time has finally arrived.
