These children of mine......it's funny how much you can learn from a child. Today after church, I was reminded of a scripture found in Matthew 22: 36-40 (see reference to the right). How simple are these words...yet so difficult at the same time? I always think of my children when I read these verses because THEY GET IT. They understand how to love deeply and forgive easily. Oh to have the heart of a child! I am so thankful that I get to be their mother and learn from their example everyday. If someone hurts my daughter's feelings, naturally she gets upset. However, a few minutes later she is up and it's like it never happened. I love her example.
If someone hurts you or speaks badly about you, love them anyway. If someone makes you angry or offends you, love them anyway. It is so simple, yet so hard to master. Wouldn't our world be so much better if we could all learn to master this? It's not easy, but I'm trying.
While on our family vacation, I took some pictures of my children in overalls. Why? Well, my dad wears overalls ALL. THE. TIME. and we when I saw kid sized overalls, I just knew I had to buy them some! It was such a fun and spontaneous photoshoot. I will cherish these photos forever because they remind me of my dad. He is such a wonderful Papaw to my children and I am thankful for that everyday.
