Learn Life's Greatest Lessons

God, of course, knew what He was doing when He put the children He chose for you, into your life. The children in your life are not there by accident - they are there for a purpose; and God promises His purposes for you and for them are for your good, to bring you all hope and a future. They learn truth and how to know, walk and talk with God from us and we learn much about life, love, purpose, meaning and priority from them. Definitely purposes for our good which bring us hope and a future!

My children have taught me much; my daughter, son and daughter-in-law have taught me about what it looks like to have a tender heart as they are all kind, thoughtful, caring people. They care about the world in which we live and they care very much about people who need help - they see others as Jesus did (just read Matthew 5 and 19 to see how Jesus saw people.) They have perspective and have opened my eyes to being sure I see people as does Jesus.

My grandsons teach me so much about the things which really matter. These three boys have SO much energy and enthusiasm! They are very interested in the world around them - especially the wonder of creation and the way science relates. They love learning new tech; and since I am an extremely tech-challenged grandma, they often show great patience as they explain the tech to me. These boys also have a great sense of humor and love to laugh. The thing I love the most is how they have faith and trust God. They believe in God, trust His Word is true and hold to this faith and trust with their all. They continually teach me about joy, faith and trust.

God knew what He was doing when He put your family together. Look for the blessings and learn the things He wants you to learn from the family in which He chose to place you.
