I was inspired to do a new painting recently and I finished it in time for my daughter's first day back at school. I had time to reflect today on how fast she has grown over the years. I remember when I used to play peek-a-boo with her when she was only a few months old and now she is mature enough to drive and is starting the 11th grade.
We only have a few years to bring our children up in the Lord and to teach them how to live a life of service to go out and make a difference in the world. They learn mostly from watching our example and from the things we say to them. Give your children a hug today and tell them how special they are, because one day they will grow up and start a life of their own.
