now my little one is six and she's been reading for a while now. she reads her school books daily and at times begrudgingly. however, on this particular day, a wednesday to be exact, things changed. my sweet girl realized that she has the power within her to delight in any story of her choosing. joseph and the coat of many colors was the story that made way for her revelation. she read each word with joy as if they were jumping off the pages. once she finished the page we did a dance and chased and tickled in honor of the glorious knowledge that SHE CAN READ ANYTHING her heart desires.
for the rest of the day she carried her Jesus Story Book Bible under her arm and read word after word. I snapped a few photos and stood back soaking in this sweet moment, thankful that I get to be part of this journey!
