Today we were watching my (Kristine) favorite Veggie Tale movie with Jenna. It's called, "Sumo of the Opera." I love it because it has so many fun elements to it. Among those, it includes St. Patrick and it has a musical parody of the Mikado. Seriously, it's the best Veggie Tale movie out there, you should check it out. OH! I almost forgot that it's also got the BEST silly song ever on homophones. It's silly AND educational. The best combo.
Towards the end of the movie, when they come to the memory verse part, the computer broke because one of them tried to "fix it". This made me laugh because recently my computer broke and because we've been so busy, someone *cough* has been too busy to fix it. :) But that's okay... we got an Ipad 2 to take with us to show people MAF videos and pictures, so it's all good.
Because the computer was broken, the little guy had to write a verse out from memory. It was Hebrews 10:36, "You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised."
That was the exact verse we needed to hear today. A reminder that often the things that are of God aren't easy. There's no yellow brick road to make it easy, but we need to persevere through slow times when the task seems insurmountable so that we will accomplish and learn what God has for us. God has a plan and we just need to be faithful and listen to His leading. I know today I will be listening a little harder and trying even more harder to accomplish what God has for me to do today.
