I love my children! They are awesome!
Did I learn how to love them from a book? No
Did I learn how to be with them from a Film? No
Did I learn how to discipline them from Facebook? No
Did I learn how to protect them from an app? No
Did I lean how to enjoy them from Twitter? No
I learned how to be with my children from……being with them, I learned how to treat them from being around them, I learned what works and what doesn’t from interacting with them!
I didn’t have to learn how to love them, I just did, even before they were born, I loved them, when they were born I found I had an unimaginable, unfathomable amount of love for them, I didn’t need books or films or Facebook or twitter or anything else for that matter I just needed them! As much as they need me, I need them!
My eldest will be 12 already very soon, and It has gone by so fast! And I know that I have lost some of that time due to my failings, I can’t get that time back but I can do something about losing more!
Yes I have to work and yes there are other things i have to do, but my children are vital!
Look at how God love us, that’s the example we have been set.
He knows every thing about me how I work, how I function, what I like, what I like less!
He knows how to get my attention and what works and what doesn’t!
Even how to discipline me
He’s always there for me, even when I’m not there for him
He protects us
He does you too, whether you know it or not!
Are not five sparrows sold for two pennies? Yet not one of them is forgotten by God. Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.
1 John 3:1
See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are!
for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.
