Open Facebook, turn on the news or just listen to the gossip after church on Sunday and what will you see? My guess is you will not see Christians loving one another, spurning one another on to love and good works or iron sharpening iron. Too often we see pride, arrogance and cutting comments as we desire to make ourselves more important.
Tonight I sat at Starbucks chatting with two homeschooling moms. Both moms were public school teachers who gave up teaching in the school system when they had children. They wanted to invest time and energy into their own children's education on a daily basis, but more importantly they wanted teach their children that every area of life matters to God...not only matters but He created math, language, science, history, geography!
We live on a small farm and one thing that never changes from year to year is the amount of bugs in the spring and summer time. The girls and I are virtual bug magnets! The boys have been in the jungle of Haiti and barely been bit.
Micah turned one year old last month and now the questions begin...when are you having another one?
Somewhere over the years my older children have gone from being my children to being my closest friends. I love investing time with them, whether traveling to appointments, watching them as they become more independent or the long chats we have...often late at night when they arrive home from work.
