Side By Side

February 17, 2012

In my family scrapbook is a picture of my daughter at age 4 working next to me, using a toy hammer to repair the siding on the house. Side by side we worked that day; she imitated my every action, absolutely convinced that she too was fixing the house. Rarely have I enjoyed a chore more. In the picture, it’s obvious that she’s enjoying it too.

That photo reminds me that our children mimic most of what they see in us—words and deeds. They also form their images of God from the images they have of us as parents. If we’re stern and unmerciful, they’re likely to see God that way too. If we’re distant and cold, so God will seem to them as well. It is one of our most important duties as parents to help our children see God clearly, especially the unconditional nature of His love.

I can imagine the family scrapbook of my relationship with God having a similar picture. I’m learning from Him how to live life, how to love, and how to make it a permanent part of my being. He then teaches me how to teach others (Deut. 6:1-7).

May the Lord grant us an understanding of Him and the wisdom to pass it on.

We must teach our children clearly
What is right and what is wrong;
Live before them an example—
Godly, righteous, pure, and strong. —Fitzhugh

To teach your children well, let God teach you.

Read: Deuteronomy 6:1-9

You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up. —Deuteronomy 6:7
Bible in a year:
Deuteronomy 4-6

I got home late & have been cleaning since then.

Sonboy was prescribed Prednisone (sp) for his injured back. Holy carp he's bouncing off the walls! LOL

A tad bit chatty & he's even cleaning!

Thanks very much, Kathy!

*HUGS*

We're on a new project at work and I've been all but chained to the desk the last several days. They're talking overtime in a couple of weeks.

I had another rip-roarin' PT session last night. Working hard - the tech thinks I'm making progress, and based upon last night I'm inclined to agree with her. Made it for two miles on the stationary bike warmup and exceeded most of my other benchmarks.

Of course, the legs feel like jelly today - I should be recovered enough to start on the treadmill tomorrow.

I hope everything is going well with you and with your Mom and Dad.
