I know Monday’s are usually crazy but today was actually pretty great. We were busy but this morning was wonderful. When I woke R1 and R2 had done their chores and were watching a show. I made coffee and then headed to the school room to get R1 set up. We started by reading our devotion and then working in his prayer journal.
He thanked God for his parents, sisters, family and friends. He asked God to forgive him for being mean to his sisters, being disrespectful and lying.
And then. He asked God to help him understand His word! I was floored.
He read through his prayer and then I prayed over him and we went on with school.
R1 was saved in Sept of ’09 and most times I feel like I’m failing miserably at showing Jesus’ love to my kids. Thankfully I have a wonderful church family who steps in to fill any gaps. They are pouring into him every Sunday, and soon again every Wednesday. We have made some great friends here and even those I am not close to are wonderfully caring and genuine.
God is good. So good.
