We hope that this blog serves as a means of providing a peek into the window of the life of our family; our life that, as James 4:14 says, truly is "a vapor." We are so thankful for our friends and family near and far and hope that this serves as another way to share our life with you. We would appreciate your prayers for us as we seek to glorify the Lord in the midst of this vapor. Thankfully, He is in control of it all!
VERSE OF THE DAY
A Challenge to Parents
"Brothers and sisters, if you want your children to have a reason to sing on Sunday, you have to give them a great God. If you want them to have a reason not to sin on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday - you have to give them a great God . . . Because a shrunken God will have nothing to hold them when their friends are offering them the pleasures of sin for a season. We've got to give our children a great and glorious God. We've got to hold out for them the wonder of who God is.
The importance of all of this is that if our children are going to interpret life correctly, than they've got to understand who God is. You see, it's only the being and existence of God that will ever enable our children to interpret and understand life accurately.
If you are going to help your children to see those things, you've got to be a person that is dazzled by God yourself. You can't give away what you don't posses.
Oh, let me urge you as parents, don't polish the idols for your kids. . . Help your kids see the wonder of who the Lord is. "
Giving Kids a Vision for God's Glory
Praying for My Children
Autism affects 1 in 110 children, 1 in 70 boys. Our John David was diagnosed with high-functioning autism at 17 months old. We praise the Lord daily that this was detected so early, for we now know how crucial it is to provide early intervention. So much of what has helped our son is what my husband and I have learned; and there is so much more we need to know! Join us in trying to learn more so that you too can help someone affected by this pervasive epidemic.
