a slice of encouragement

everyone who follows this blog knows the trails I have raising Gray, well today I saw hope in his future. This week we made a stop at the Christian book store because gray has been asking to buy Bibles. He said "I want to be a missionary here so I think I better have a stash of Bibles to hand out" great, right? so at the book store he picked out 6 tiny 2x3" Bibles which he said "were perfect". so today we brought a friend to church for her fist time and as we were going to drive her home gray ran in to the house and came back out with a Bible and told her " here this is for you. keep it in your purse so you can read the Bible anytime you want" she was very touched and showed him that it went in her purse. he fell asleep before we got home but I can't wait to talk with him tomorrow about it and tell him he really is a missionary now! suddenly all his troubles don't seem all that bad...
