Brotherly Love

A friend loves you all the time. A brother is always there to help you.
Proverbs 17:17 God's little boy makes friends with others;
Those friends include his sisters and brothers.
True friends are always a gift from above;
Make it your goal to give Brotherly Love.

For Christmas our boys were given a book from their Texas grandparents called, "God's Wisdom for Little Boys: Character Building Fun from Proverbs". It's full of fun riddles, rhymes and Bible verses (all taken from Proverbs), that help to impart God's wisdom to the little boys in ones life.
Jaxon & Maddox are well on their way to becoming good friends. Over the past two weeks we have been spending lots of time playing together. Jaxon is quick to remind me that, "Max wants to play too!", if he wakes up in the middle of our alone time together. It's really amazing to see the way Maddox watches Jaxon and even more amazing watching Jaxon teach Max! Jaxon's been reading to him, teaching him all about cows, trucks, trains, planes, spaceships... the list goes on and on!
The picture above was taken New Year's morning. Jaxon had just woken up and the first thing he asked was, "Where's Max?" He asked me then to take their picture... and what a sweet picture it ended up being! Upon reviewing the image I thought to myself, now that's the picture of true Brotherly Love!
