My oldest boy, S-man (8 yr. old), was baptized on the 19th of December & as tradition we give our children their first "real" set of scriptures with their names engraved on them & a scripture bag, for their baptism. Well, the bag I bought S-man barely fit the scriptures & I knew it wasn't going to last long. The bags that would have fit better were more expensive than the scriptures themselves & I couldn't see how that made any sense at all...so I thought this was something that I could make for him...but what about Mr. C (my 5 yr. old)?
Well, the day after S-man's baptism when he grabbed his scripture bag (the one I bought him) as we were heading out the door for church, Mr. C insisted that he have a bag too. So he headed back to the bedroom & went in search of a bag that he could carry to church. Well, the only one he could find & was satisfied with was big sister, Missy M's, little pretty, flowery scripture bag. So he went to church with that! This was when I decided that he needed his own "church" bag as well. Both of the boys were so excited when they opened their bags on Christmas day & that really did my heart good.
