Precious Moments with Children


The Work of His Fingers CoverEvery so often you come across a children’s book that brings that little something extra…that little something that makes you smile, that makes you want to read it again. My heart was lifted when I read “The Work of His Fingers” by Alison Brown. I purchased the book from Creation Ministries (www.creation.com), and was taken on wonderful journey of rhyme in praise of creation.

This book opens little hearts to the wonder and precision of God’s amazing design in all things, while at the same time refutes the big answers evolution offers today. I will read this delightful book to myThe Work of His Fingers Page children (and any child that happens to come into my care 😉 ) over and over again. My three year old son “loves this book, thank you very much, mummy!” and my 11 year old is quick to put up his hand to read it to him, (I guess that’s a big tick from him as well).

The illustrations, also by Alison, are a pleasure to behold, bringing humor and life to the pages. I recommend this book to everyone who has the opportunity to read to littlies, as it establishes truth and addresses, oh so subtly, the alternative views being offered today.

The Work of His Fingers BackIt is not often you are surprised by a purchase that turns out to be a real gem, but today, I was. 😀

My son Master Two (will be three next week) has been suffering with a temperature all day yesterday and it still rages as I write this morning. At about 12.30am he waddles out of bed to find me (ahem) finished blogging, and in his best voice with perfect manners he requests a drink of water.

I complimented him, as I handed him the cup of water, on his use of manners in spite of the late hour and his current state of health. Upon receipt of the water he said in his beautiful little two year old sick-y voice:

“I love Jesus.”

Truly:

“Out of the mouths of babes and nursing infants You have perfected praise.” Matthew 21:16.

I know this moment was precious in His sight.
