About 4 years I had this idea and dream of taking each one of my children on a “missions” trip. That was when my oldest was moving in to her teenage years. WOW…this year my ‘baby’ turns 18, my next just turned 16 and my boys are 13 and 15 this year. Well a few weeks ago my two girls and I had the chance to go to Paris and serve alongside our missionaries. What a great time to be in another part of the world serving with my girls.
BUT THEN I GOT TO THINKING! THey are my mission field. They are a stewardship that God has entrusted to me. I only have them for a short time…and then I turn them back over to serve the Lord in their adult lives.
Thanks God for giving me a great group of kids: They are yours. Thanks for giving me the opportunity to invest in their lives. I love you Cory, Gabby, Chi and Si! But more than that…God loves you too!
Deuteronomy 6: “Fear the Lord your God as long as you live. Love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your strength. Talk to your children when you are at home and when you are away on a journey, when you are lying down and when you are getting up.”
