Prayer time was so sweet. As each said their prayers they would pray for everyone and everything…family, friends, school, and onto the neighbors’ pets, the squirrels in our yard…
For years I thought they were so thoughtful – they prayed even for the squirrels!! And yes they were thoughtful…but years later I learned they were actually praying for everything under the sun so they could stay up later!! HA! Kids are so cute!
But if our boys were using prayer as a way to stay up later…more power to them.
After a story and prayers I’d stand at the door and tell each of them “God has special plans for you…don’t miss it!”
Our boys are now men – husbands, fathers, businessmen…and we are so proud of them. Today our oldest officially received his Florida Contractor’s License…just one of the many plans God has for him.
We knew he could do it and we are so proud of him!!!!
Imagine…if we as parents are so blessed and proud of our children when they do well, what does the Father think of our lives? Does He look into our hearts and lives and say, well done my good and faithful servant?
Have I been faithful over what God has placed in my life? Have you?
“His master replied, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!’
“If you are faithful in little things, you will be faithful in large ones. But if you are dishonest in little things, you won’t be honest with greater responsibilities.”
Lord, make me a faithful steward of all things…all gifts you have placed in my life. I know you have plans for me…plans for my family…and plans for my readers…help all of us not to miss them…and to be faithful with what you provide each of us. Amen
PS – I don ‘t have an update on Baby Claire…but I ask that you continue to pray for her.
