Sunday Rest


"Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it."
Proverbs 22:6
In light of the birthdays we've celebrated recently, I am thinking on such things as this. I hold to this verse as an encouragement not to give up in training up my children rightly. I pray that Dan and I will be faithful in our duty as parents and that our children will show the fruits of this and the working of God in their hearts when they are grown. This verse also gives me an awareness of the great responsibility that God has given us in raising these dear children. They are ours for a time...but truly they are God's and I hope that we will see them praising God and raising their children up to glorify Him too.
May you hold your children close today and be faithful to the duty the Lord has intrusted you with. Have a lovely Lord's Day!
Blessings,
Sommer

Sommer,

That verse has comforted me many times especially when my children went away to college. There are so many temptations out there but they have remained faithful. God is good.

You are doing a wonderful job mothering. Just that your heart desires to mother your children as God's word instructs is so valuable. Remain steadfast in Him<><
