Library Time

I just got back from taking my five-year-old and 20 month-old to the county library.  Let’s just say that I imagine they are very happy that the books are not due back for two weeks.


God has a Plan

I teach the Pre-K Sunday School class once a month at our church.  My son Sam is in my class.  This past Sunday I was teaching them about prayer.  The scripture reference was Jeremiah 29:11-13.  I was going to explain to the children that God has a plan for their life.  Before doing so, I asked them what their plans were for when they grow up.  I had several answers such as a policeman, a fire fighter, an airport worker, etc.  But the response that came from my son provided me with one of those moments as a mother that I was somewhat speechless.  He said with unabashed pride, “I am going to be a garbage man when I grow up!”.  I smiled kindly at my co-teacher as the pastor’s son said, “I’m going to be a preacher.”  I’m sure his mom and dad would have been proud.  🙂

In all seriousness, though, whatever my son chooses to do with his life, I pray that it will be the perfect plan that God has for him. 

As a little side note-his favorite movie right now is Toy Story 3 and there is huge scene in the movie that is located at the city dump.  He is fascinated with that movie.

I am a new mom again.  This time a little girl.  Her name is Devri.  She is named after her dad.  His middle name is Devry.  She is such a sweet little baby girl and I am enjoying having a new little one in the house. 

She is a very happy baby.  She smiles and laughs and coos at me all the time.  I look forward to every moment that I have with her.  I tell her that one day we will be best friends-when she is about 25.  Until then, I have to be the best parent that I can be.  This is easy when she is a baby, but I know in the years ahead we will have our differences.  I just pray that God gives me the wisdom, knowledge and understanding of how to speak into her life.  I know most importantly I have to be praying for her daily.  This is an important aspect of parenting for me.  I pray for both of my children every day and I look forward to watching their lives play out before me.

Proverbs 22:1

A good name is more desirable than great riches; to be esteemed is better than silver or gold.
