Sometimes in life, there are moments of overwhelming, deep-down joy. I am so very proud of my boys. Now granted they get on my nerves from time to time, especially when I'm overly exhausted but for the most part they are precious gifts. Time nor words will allow me to share all of the details here, but I provided them with real-life circumstances about difficult decisions that sometimes we have to make. They asked a few questions & then began to give me the reasons they would choose the decision they did. I was amazed at their depth in understanding & the way they made those decisions based upon Godly principles. They didn't choose the popular choice. They made decisions based upon loving others, being a candle in the darkness, & being willing to stand when everyone else around sits.
It is times like these that makes a parent realize that something they did was right. That the many, many trips to church, Bible studies, etc. was sinking in & that God has truly spoken into & over their lives with His Word & Promises. That God's Word is Living & Truth & that if we train up a child in the way he should go then he will not depart from it. Thanksgiving fills my heart as I consider God's impact on my boys! I am humbled that they seek Him, and that they are genuinely good. I pray that they continue on the path of righteousness, to grow in Him, & to love Him above all else. I am not sure that the words exist to express to them know how truly grateful I am that God allowed me to be their mom!
