I was asked last week if I was free this Wednesday. I said that I was. The request had to do with The Bean. I was to hang out with a friend to watch this guy. I'm up for hanging out with a friend. The guy I was watching is called The Bean for all intents and purposes. Well, as soon as I saw him, he smiled at me. He has this smile that has a way that puts me in the best of moods. He smiled when he saw me. Today I must look wonderful because this other "babe" comes running to me. They are killing me with these smiles.
Let me tell you about this Bean. He has curly brown hair and melty brown eyes. He has a dimple. There is definitely a way about him. He is quick to smile and he's friendly. He is a tiny little human bean, hence The Bean and he is about 10 pounds. My friend, Jena and I were watching babies today for the Bible Study. The other "babe" that came running to me is Jay, a toddler that I have lovingly watched grow up since he was a little bean himself.
I pick up The Bean and he is light. He loves music in a way that is amazing. You put on a song and he listens to the voices and the music. We sang songs and raised our hands. There was this one song where someone hit a high note and he was singing the high note in his baby garble. He was lifting his hands in praise. He was!!! Ask Jena!!! He likes to dance and he likes percussion. He has great rhythm and he is learning how to walk. He likes to hang out with me on the floor. He's very independent. This wonderful little human bean makes me smile. Watching him is a gift.
I don't know if I'll be asked to hang out with him again, but it's a blessing watching the babies of the church grow into the people we are praying to the Lord that they become. I may start looking forward to Wednesdays. Praise the Lord!!! Thanks Rye and Britt for lending Beanie to me.
