I returned home Sunday afternoon from a wonderful 3 days at Wheaton College in Illinois. I was there for their theology conference featuring N. T. Wright (more on that later). What a joy to see the kids again! A few days away reminded me just how precious they each are.
Emma (age 4 1/2) asked, "Mom, could you carry me to bed?"
I replied, "I think I could probably manage that."
Eliana piped in, "You should be able to. You're strong from carrying all those commentaries all the time!"
Who knew that seminary would be so practically useful for the duties of motherhood?
