Fast forward to a few days ago when I was cleaning out Luke's closet. Luke has the toy chest his grandpa made for Belle in front of his window in his room and he just loves to climb up on it and attempt to destroy my blinds just to catch a glimpse of our "busy" street. So, to keep them occupied, as they had both just awoke from a nap, I raised the blinds. They proceeded to sit in the window for right at an hour and laugh hysterically at each other! I ran to grab my camera and got a few shots and a video of it.
Who knew they could be that funny?
Down right belly laughing!
Not sure how much more Belle can take!
As I look at these pictures I just fall in love with these kids all over again. I can hear their belly laughing piercing thru all of the troubles of my mind and pains in my heart. They remind me that the things of this world are only temporary. They are brother and sister...to be there for each other at all times. To give the other one a hug when they need it and stern talking to when they need it (and trust me...they tell each other what they think). These pictures and this sound have just blessed me so much that I had to share. Sit back and let the giggles wash away all of your worries....
**Edited Addition: We should be likewise as brothers and sisters in the Kingdom, too, right? Be an encouragement to each other...give each other a hug when they need it...tell them the truth when they need it...Edify each other and Glorify Christ, right? So why don't we?
