Rewarding Moments

Rewarding Moments

When you are in the middle of dirty diapers and toddler tantrums, it’s hard to envision those children sitting across the table from us as young adults. I promise, they really do grow up fast.

It is easy to remember all the times I lost my temper, lacked patience or neglected chores.

When I read through the first few books of the Bible, I see God telling his people to celebrate. Today my heart was celebrating.

Remembering days filled with paint and construction paper.
Remembering books read over and over.
Remembering songs sung to learn letters and Bible verses.
Remembering conversations and one thousand questions during car rides.

All those days, memories, lead to a day where your child sits across from you and you realize he really is becoming a young man. One who will influence his family, community and world for the better. He asks questions about world history, political tensions and the future possible for people in a nation under oppressive rule. He leads his peers while recognizing their needs before his own. He makes his mom and dad very proud.
