Today we decided to keep the mess inside and limited tothe kitchen and made some goopy stuff with cornstarch and water... The kids had a BLAST and made quite the mess in the process but it kept them occupied while we tended to our youngest. The kids found it to be "the funniest stuff ever". My husband and I even played with the goop for a moment laughing at its craziness.
As I watched them play with such amazement with something so simple to make I wondered if God giggled when He decided that adding water to cornstarch would make such a fun mess? "Boy they are going to get a kick out of this!"
Psalm 127:3 says that "Children are a gift from the Lord; they are a reward from Him." (NLT)
There is such truth to that! This weekend was such a celebration of just how much of a blessing our children have been in our life! Even if it began with a rough start, it worked out so beautifully. It was such a simple and fun weekend! And I thank God for the laughs we shared! (And the mess)
