The past few weeks, Emily has been meeting with our pastor about salvation. On December 8, she prayed to ask Jesus into her heart. We’re delighted for her decision. Because of her age, we felt it best that she meet with the pastor before making a profession of faith and being baptized. So far, she has met with him four times. Her final meeting will be this week. Scott and I have taken turns going with her. I went with her last week. We talked about how each person is created unique and for a purpose. He asked Emily how many 6 years old named Emily there are that are just exactly like her. She seemed to grasp the idea that she is an original.
It’s so amazing to me that we are unique not only by our abilities, but also by our appearance. We often hear about how much Timothy and Zachary look alike. We used to argue that while there is no denying that they are brothers, they each have their own unique look. Lately, we’ve more inclined to just let it go. We are with the boys day in and day out, so we notice their differences more than those who don’t see them as much.
Almost as much as we hear that the boys look alike, we hear that the boys look just like Scott and that Emily looks like me. I’ve been looking at some old pictures lately, and have really enjoyed seeing the similarities in our baby pictures and the kids’ pictures.
These are some pictures of us around the age that the kids are now and some pictures of the kids at age 2, 3 1/2, and 6.
This is not to dispute anybody’s opinion about who the kids look like. All three of them definitely favor both of us at times. These were just some that I found interesting.
