Children add to the family dynamics. When you bring a child into your family it can be a challenge. Not only did you adjust as a couple, but now you have a helpless individual in your care as well. They now control your world! They tell you when to eat, sleep, and relax. They have a schedule all their own and they are an extension of your love. They are a gift from the Lord for a short time to watch over and care for. Your job as a parent is life altering. You create a safe place for them, full of love, joy, tenderness, and safety. Speaking into their live that first few years is so important. Pray for them, love them, hug, them, and be with them. Your love as a father and mother is the beginning of their journey to success or failure. Choose Love, Choose Life, Chose your Child!
“Behold children are a heritage from the Lord… Happy is the man whose quiver is full.” Psalm 127:3-5
Enjoy your life’s Journey
Through my blog I hope to share Godly wisdom that I have learned through the years. I have been married for 32 years and have raised three wonderful children. Two of which are married and one is engaged to be married next year. My husband is a retired teacher and now a partner with his brother in a new business . I am still currently employed at the local high school. I have also been a class advisor to the junior and senior classes for the past ten years.
This is where my heart hurts for the youth of today. Daily I see many young men and young ladies struggling with choices they make to be accepted by their peers. Many do not have positive home lives or come from single family homes with a working parent struggling to make ends meet. They work hard to provide and find themselves sinking deeper into despair.
My hope is that I can share my life’s experiences and lessons I have learned with other parents and families. I do not promise that everyone’s life will be a bed of roses, but maybe we can pull out some weeds before they get overgrown. Every family is a garden full of potential. Every child is destined for greatness! They have a purpose, a plan, and a destiny. Every family , no matter the size, needs others to come along side to bring comfort and hope. Together we can make a difference.
