Letters to My Kids: October 2015

It's been awhile since I posted one of these about letters I've written, hasn't it? I hate to say it, but it's not just because I've forgotten, it's because in August and September, I didn't write to my kids. In August, I lost a job and started a new one. In September, I was working 50-60 hours a week, between my two jobs. Still, no excuses, I've been a bad sponsor over the last couple of months. It makes me feel a little bit better knowing that most of my kids wrote a letter to me and I responded to those letters. But still, I feel guilty knowing my kids were waiting on letters from me.

So, while October isn't over yet, I've already written two letters. One I will share today and another (My Christmas letter) I will share tomorrow.

At the beginning of October, I shared about the amazing Blood Moon Eclipse that we experienced. I shared a little bit about the science of an eclipse and attached a little diagram that shows why the moon turns red in this special kind of eclipse. Then I shared a bible verse and talked about how powerful our God is, that he can control planets, the sun, and the moon and line them up in perfect way to show us, here on earth, beautiful images in the sky. I then asked each child if they were able to see the lunar eclipse where they live (I know it was visible in many countries throughout the world.

Here's the letter I sent, if you'd like to read it:
