Ps 144:12

medium_3190402405As I prepare for the new year, I am reminded of one of my long term goals in rearing my children found in Ps 144:12, “That our sons may be as plants grown up in their youth: that our daughters may be as corner stones, polished after the similitude of a palace:”

My desire is that my boys be mature in their youth. I pray everyday that God will help me to balance responsibility with childhood play, so that they grow into young men able to care and provide for their own families someday.  I also desire that my daughter will be polished and a lady in every way. Faced with the culture today, these seem to be almost impossible tasks, yet ones that Ray and I take very seriously as we beg God for daily wisdom.
