Remembering When.....


Proverbs 22:6 (King James Version) :  Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.

I ran across this picture this week as i was cleaning out the attic.  I sat and just boo - whoed.  I know crazy right?  I really can't blieve that this little gitl has grown up into a beautiful 15 year old young lady.  It seems like just yeaterday she was running through the barn yard catching chickes.( Oh yeah that was just yersterday!Lol!)  Well, you know what I mean.  I know that the Lord gives us things to enjoy about each stage of life, but i truely miss the years 3-8, I really do.  That was the time I could solve most of lifes problems for her, not so many of them theses days.  I realize the value of the vere abovemore and more each day when I see her make good choices and trusting that the Lord will lead her where he wants her.  Through all the antics of being a 15 year old and living a Godly life I know that her day is filled with choices I never had to make.  Eventhough I teach in the same school she attends it is not my place to intervine unless it is a major wrong.  She has to live her life and learn to listen to that still small voice.  I think God each day for the blessing he has given me with her.

Oh what a cute picture and what a beautiful daughter you have! She sounds like a blessed daughter to have a mom who has taught her to rely on the Lord.

God bless her and may the Lord help her to stay strong in her faith, and not compromise her beliefs. I too know it's a hard world out there.
