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.
