He’s great in so many ways, but I do really love to see Stephen with the neighbor kids. It is so fun to see his love and care for them, as well as their adoration of him. They come to him to play, to be held, to help. They ask him to open the gate and fix things. They’ll ask him to make things out of a pile of trash. They come for hugs. They come for high fives and to be thrown in the air.
They really come to him for everything except trying to away with something: they know I’m the best pushover.
I love that they have a chance to see man that really loves the Lord in all he does. I’m thankful they get to see how they can have fun and be loved in a safe environment. I’m thankful they know that he’ll defend them. I’m thankful they get to see how he treats me and how he loves me. I’m thankful they get to see him play worship songs on the guitar. I’m thankful they get to see him work hard, help in the kitchen, read books, and go to church.
