WE ALL KNOW GOD LOVES CHILDREN MORE THAN ANYTHING ELSE HE HAS CREATED
and for HIM to entrust US with HIS gifts of children
tells us how much HE love US



PARENTHOOD IS THE SINGLE MOST IMPORTANT JOB IN THE WHOLE WORLD.
HOW OUR CHILDREN GET THEIR START IN LIFE IS THE MOST IMPORTANT FACTOR IN MOLDING THEIR LIVES.

TAKING THE TIME TO LOVE, TEACH, LISTEN TO, UNDERSTAND (at least TRYING to understand), GUIDING, DIRECTING, MAKING SURE OF A SOLID CHRISTIAN UPBRINGING.....

ALL OF THESE THINGS AND MORE ARE SO IMPORTANT TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF A HAPPY, WELL ADJUSTED PERSON.....

NOT ONLY DO MOST OF US DO THESE THINGS FOR OUR CHILDREN OUT OF DEEP AND UNCONDITIONAL LOVE....
BUT IT IS ALSO NOT ONLY OUR RESPONSIBILITY BUT OUR DUTY TO DO THE VERY BEST JOB WE CAN POSSIBLY DO.

CHILDREN ARE GOD'S GIFT TO US AND WE SHOULD NEVER....EVER
TAKE THEM LIGHTLY.

THEY ARE SUCH A JOY.....TAKE DELIGHT IN EVERY SINGLE MINUTE YOU HAVE WITH THEM......


GOD BLESS and HAVE A WONDERFUL SUNDAY

Children are a gift. I am so thankful that I have 2 wonderful sons that the Lord let me watch over for years.
Now I have been blessed with 3 amazing granddaughters.

I am blessed

Our little girl returned home to mommy daddy and little brother, this afternoon. We had a very good time! I think she would have stayed a couple weeks..maybe longer!

Beautiful post, BJ! Have a wonderful week

They grow up so very quickly, don't they? I sometimes wonder where all the time disappeared to.

We give them roots and wings, and send our children out into the world, hopefully to make it a better place.

God bless.
