Sunday we all went to second service at our church. We usually go to first because second falls during lunch and nap times. It is just not convenient. Well, this past Sunday was the promotion ceremony for all those kids who were moving up. Chiara was able to participate because she will be Kindergarten age....she still finds this very confusing because academically we finished Kindergarten already.
We had both Chiara and Mayah sitting in service with us. There is nothing that brings tears to my eyes than looking over at these two beautiful girls and watching them praise the Lord. Mayah clapping to the song with her little hands and Chiara trying to sing along makes my eyes well up. I could barely look over at them! The one time I dared Chiara was raising her hands in worship and I lost it.....as a parent you wonder what your children are learning watching you-do they understand your love for the Lord? Do they know Him? I surely can say that my children do. Sunday worship has a way of wiping all the junk away from the week.
Here Chiara is with Miss Robin. She has been a blessing for PFA and us! She loves each child that walks into "The Tab" and knows them well. Chiara is very fond of her and I know she will miss praise and worship time with her.
