We’re to Q. Q. What kind of letter is Q? It can’t even work on it’s own, it’s got to have a little “u” next to it. How random is that? Who made that rule up? It’s very strange to me much less a 2 year old.
I was a little stuck on a Q verse. The only one I could think of was “Quench not the Spirit.” 1 Thessalonians 5:19. King Jimmy anyone? So, I emailed my bbb* (and one faithful commenter), Leigh. She got concordance- happy and sent me a great list of Q verses.
“I am quick to obey your commands…” Psalm 119:32
That is definitely something I want my daughter, Lydia to be. Quick to obey. That’s one reason I named her Lydia because the Lydia in the Bible was quick to believe and do for God. However, when I explained that “quick” meant “fast”, she said, “Mommy, I don’t like fast.” Oh, well.
After a little starfall, and reading the verse, we decided to make a queen.. A beautiful, royal queen. I wanted it to just be her face with a little tinfoil crown. I mean, everyone has tinfoil in their cupboard, right?
So, on to Plan B. I looked through my wrapping paper until I found some silver ribbons. I found some pretty purple tissue paper with scalloped edges and voila, our queen:
OK, so Lydia put her lips on upside down. And she doesn’t have any limbs. And as Lydia pointed out, no chin, either. But still, she looks regal. Right?
I’m looking forward to this letter because I really want to tell Lydia the story of Queen Esther. One of my favorite kids’ Bibles, The Super Hero Bible is illustrated by Brother Jones Artwork. And their picture of Queen Esther is the best I’ve ever seen. I know she’ll love it when she sees it. Sorry I can’t show it to you… (FYI: I just went on amazon to link to it and it says it is OUT OF PRINT. If you ever find one at your bookstore, buy it. It’s way cool.)
Anyway, I think we’re also going to watch Veggie Tale’s Queen Esther. Even though it may be a little confusing when Lydia doesn’t even know the story to watch it with vegetables, but whatever. And of course, I’ve already promised Lydia we’ll be making Queen crowns. I found some really cute ones online yesterday. I’ll share them with you soon, I promise!
Oh, and keep your feed readers open, I’ve got a special announcement coming up ASAP!
