Parenting...probably the most difficult task set before us but also one of the most rewarding !
While my first born has stayed true to her firstborn nature, I have to let the world know how much I enjoy her ! She is creative (she did the blog creating for our family blog), she started her own blog (see the link on the right side of this page), she knows what she believes and more importantly, she knows how to ask questions to determine if what she believes lines up with Scripture, and she is growing into a beautiful Godly young lady ! Ahhh.....what a joy !
I write this post so you can link to her blog and check out the pictures she included of her brother and extended family and friends. Her blog is www.mylifeunscripted1.blogspot.com.
Now, allow me a few more sentences to tell you about my second born and only son.....while he is a boy complete with boy traits, he is sensitive and tender-hearted. He would gladly give you the shirt off his back if he thought you needed it. He recently wrote a paragraph about our neighbor's little boy that brought smiles and delight to the child and his family. He, too, is creative and uses his creativity mostly in music and now in his writings. He is growing into a Godly young man as he searches for what it means to live a Christ-like life. Oftentimes, he asks us question after question to be sure he understands what God expects of him. What joy to know that your children understand about having a personal relationship with Christ in spite of all the mistakes we make as parents and despite all our sins that they see ! God is faithful.
Parenting...yes, it is hard, but the rewards are worth every difficult moment, hour, and day. So, endure....stand firm.....continue to disciple them....and thank God for every moment He gives you with them.
Blessings to all,
