Nehemiah's Wall Builder

Nehemiah 4: 17, 18 says:

"They which builded on the wall, and they that bare burdens, with those that laded, every one with one of his hands wrought in the work, and with the other hand held a weapon. For the builders, every one had his sword girded by his side, and so builded."

The Wee Guy has clearly taken this to heart.

Weapons at the ready. This is him at lunchtime.

And this is him back to work. Engrossed in his book, shield (pan lid!) on one side, sword on the other.

If any modern-day Nehemiah is looking for a wall-builder, you know where to come looking. 


  1. Nehemiah -- one of my favorite Old Testament stories. What a mighty man, and your little one is so very cute! Cold here in Missouri today. Blessings to you!

  2. The Wee Guy looks ready! He's so cute! I'm sure he would rather us say something like "he certainly looks like a force to be reckoned with..."

  3. I love when our children get to "live the story". Our kids LOVE doing Bible skits at night. (And every boy loves a sword - As he well SHOULD!!)

  4. I love this! I can totally see my boys doing this, too. Isn't it great that the Bible is so real to them? :)

  5. I love the Wee Guy. He is something special. We need all the Holy Warriors we can get don't we?

    Also, I love, love, love my apron, and the delightful Scottish sheep. I just posted, about it and then went off to begin a few quick catch-ups on some other blogs, and found your comment. I can't wait to post pictures. Hope you have a wonderful week.
    Much Love,

  6. My brothers do the same thing! Weapons at the ready 24/7! :)
