Today I thank the Lord for Thomas.  What an incredibly fun bundle of energy he has always been!  Now, I can think fondly back to the times when he learned how to flip the deadbolt on our front door, and would go out there and ring the doorbell.  Incessantly.  Um, I didn't let that continue for very long...

After learning to not go out the front door, Thomas would slip out the back door.  "Jacob, go chase your brother again!" I would call as Thomas tore across the field as fast as his little legs could carry him.  And there went Jacob, flying after him on his slightly longer little legs.  Thomas always came back willingly.

Just a few weeks ago, Thomas ran out to get the mail.  I heard the doorbell ring; he had inadvertently locked himself out.  I opened the door a crack, and teased him, "What's the password?"

"Mom is brilliant," was his grinning reply.

"Works for me!"  I let him in.  :)

My son, keep my words
And treasure my commandments within you.
Keep my commandments and live,
And my teaching as the apple of your eye.
Proverbs 7:1-2 nasb

Thank You, Lord, for Thomas.
