I am so blessed

Last night while I was at Bible Study the group and I were reflecting on a point we were discussing. A few members of the group had missed Sunday service because they were out of town for the holidays. We were talking about how the world is always changing but the Lord never changes and how important it is to witness to others. One of the ladies that had been out of town told us about an experience she had on Sunday. She said that she felt like she missed out not being in church and expressed her feelings to some other people she was with. Those people didn't understand the big deal. They said that you don't have to go to church to be with God or pray to God. After she told us this story it reminded me of something that I had been thinking about that Monday afternoon.
I was cleaning Kay's room and I started to think about when she gets older. That she'll have responsibilities and I hope that she loves God enough to continue going to church when she is a teenager. I hope that if put in a situation where she has to choose going to do something fun on a Sunday or going to church that she chooses God. I hope that it's important to her.

Back to Bible Study. So I told my friend about what she missed on Sunday service during the NOW Testament (this is when all the youth come forward to chat with the Pastor). Our Pastor was talking about the Holy Family and asked Kay if she knew who they were. She remembered that Mary and Joseph were Jesus' parents and said their names. I was so proud! One, because she actually didn't clam up in front of a crowd and two, because she remembered!

I am so blessed by God to have this wonderful child. Blessed to be her mother.

I love it when they can apply what you have been teaching them. We think we are just telling them things all the time... but when someone else asks them and they can pull from that foundation we are laying - it is so awesome! I wonder about when the kids are older too,I think: am I building a good foundation of Jesus and His love, am I teaching them all I can about God so that they will have a strong relationship with Him. It's so hard... but we just have to put our faith in Him and do our best! I think you are doing a great job! Love ya!
