My little girl Alivia has been sick all week and home from school. I wish I had the desire and smarts to home school her, but I'm afraid she'd lose all intellect. So, unless God clearly spells it out for me by sending Moses down to hand deliver a message she will remain in the school system...for her sake.
Anyway, I worked an overnight shift the other night and in the morning after we dropped Aaron off at school Alivia shared with me.
"Oh Mom, last night I slept in your bed and in the middle of the night I woke up and I heard Daddy praying over me."
Life is hard...married or single.
I shared in my last post that I'm doing the Love Dare book from the movie Fireproof right now. I love how in the middle of hardship, God gives me the words of a child touched by her Daddy's desire to be the godly man in her life.
Thank You sweet Jesus.
I so needed to see the side of him that I often ignore because I am focusing on what he lacks...in my eyes.
On a different note, the other day sweet Alivia asked me out of the blue...
"Mom, have I been good?
"Have I been good this year?"
Then it dawned on me...she is wondering if she is on Santa's naughty or nice list.
Great opportunity for me to share with her that no matter what we do God never has a Naughty or Nice list He keeps about us.
For when we ask Him to forgive us, He does just that without holding it over our head in the future.
He forgives us and moves forward hoping we follow His lead.
When we are naughty...He is nice.
Keep focused on Christ as the "holiday" season approaches.
The birth of a King is much to celebrate!
