The Chronicles of Biscuit - Sweet Conversations

The Chronicles of Biscuit:  Stories about our youngest son, Tyler, whose nickname is Biscuit.

Today Biscuit came in to where I was and wanted me to help him with his baseball uniform. We had a few interesting conversations within about five minutes....the kind of conversations that warm your heart!

Conversation #1:
Biscuit: "Mom, who baptized Jesus....Moses?"
Me:  "No, remember that Moses lived in Old Testament times.  Jesus lived in the New Testament times."
Biscuit:  "Oh, yeah, it was John the Baptist."
Me:  "That's right!"
Biscuit:  "I love you, Mom!" (as he hugged me)
Me:  "I love you, too!"

Then Jesus came from Galilee to the Jordan to be baptized by John. But John tried to deter him, saying, “I need to be baptized by you, and do you come to me?”

Jesus replied, “Let it be so now; it is proper for us to do this to fulfill all righteousness.” Then John consented.

As soon as Jesus was baptized, he went up out of the water. At that moment heaven was opened, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and lighting on him. And a voice from heaven said, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased.”
Matthew 3:13-17

Biscuit left the room to go get more of his baseball gear together, then returned.

Biscuit: "Mom, I think I want to be an author, too when I grow up." 
Me:   "That's great! What do you want to write about?"
Biscuit: "I'll write about wisdom and faith.  I'll send one to you and Dad....if you're still alive." 
Me:  "Sounds good." (Thinking...."What do you mean if we're still alive????!!)
Biscuit: "I'll make it like how Jesus grew in wisdom and stature and how he was faithful."
Me. "That will be a good story."
Biscuit: "I love you, Mom." (as he hugged me again)
Me:  "I love you, too, Biscuit."

And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and men.
Luke 2:52

On this Gratituesday, I am grateful for sweet conversations with my children. I am thankful for Biscuit sharing his heart with me today, and even more thankful that his thoughts for today were centered on Jesus and his wisdom and faithfulness.
