Thankful Thursday

I am thankful for my children

There are some lessons that God can only teach us through our children. My children have taught me the meaning of unconditional love. My children have awakened and activated my prayer life. My children have helped me understand the heart of our God. His generosity, His merciful correction, His silence. I have seen my children stumble and I have seen them get it right. I watched everything we poured into them finally begin to pour out of them. My children have matured into productive, talented, caring, articulate, funny, grounded individuals. I have sighed a sigh of relief when like the prodigal they too,"came to themselves." For this Lord I am grateful.
