We fold our hands, bow our heads and give thanks to our Father in Heaven. She is seven and loves to be close to me; I love to hold her and cuddle up to read our Bible.
When night comes, I see a lamp on in my sons’ bedroom; I peek inside and find them reading their Bible. My young lady keeps a journal, with prayers and thanks.
These are gifts that I treasure. These are gifts that comes from God. My husband and I have been obedient in teaching our children the Word; we have talked to them when they rise, when they lay down, when we walk and when we sit at the table, however, it is not because of us that our children are walking in the Truth. It is a gift that comes from God. I would say that it is in spite of us, that our children are walking in light.
My gratitude list goes on, and today I am grateful for these…
