What you do in your house is worth as much as if you did it up in heaven for our Lord God. We should accustom ourselves to think of our position and work as sacred and well-pleasing to God, not on account of the position and work, but on account of the word and faith from which the obedience and the work flow. ~ Martin Luther

A Map of Hopestead

The other day the "big kids" (as the little kids call them) decided to make maps.  

Corynn, true to her nature, made a map of a make-believe place and imagined a story to go with it.

Andrew, true to his nature, made a very practical, very realistic map of a very tangible place.  Hopestead.

He said "Hey Mama!  Look at this map I made of our house."  
I said "Oh, that's nice." with a quick glance.

And then I looked, and looked, and I realized everything was in its' proper place and practically even proportionate!  He even included the chicken that was, at the time, running loose- having escaped her cage.  It is that little scribble by the clothesline.  

The cow and pony are further on down the field, so they couldn't be pictured.  (I know this because he apologized for it. ha!)

So here it is- Hopestead.
