I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth.
- 3 John 1:4 KJV
Christmas 2008 has come and gone. Even though we had 6 of our 9 children with us, I thought a great deal about the ones not here. Seems I was not as prepared for them to grow up as I had imagined myself. Makes me wonder how my parents did it? Makes me wonder how God must have felt when He gave up His Son to death and sin for those three days. Makes me depend more on God than I thought I could. I need Him now because I miss them so much. But I knew this day would come. I knew that no growth comes without change…and my greatest desire was for my children to spread their wings and fly to wherever God called them. Just didn’t know Him calling them so far away would affect me so much. My joy? That they are walking with the Lord. My hope? That I will enjoy them forever in heaven.
