Having a break from school was a minor blessing compared to being able to see and experience (not just hear about) true Godly parenting (i.e. making the conversion experience real for children). I did find it challenging to spend so many hours (it probably wasn't as many as it seemed) doing things with a four-year-old that weren't as productive as the things that I usually do (or so I thought). Things don't exactly happen as fast when you have a four-year-old friend helping you with the dishes. But the Lord had to help me to see the importance and value, not of what we were doing, but of spending time with him. Then there was getting to watch a one-year-old learn to walk which was a lot of fun. Their are so many lessons that can be learned from it.Children are a gift from God, and I pray that I may set a safe example for those around me. God bless!
Here they are!
