The latest Good Morning Girls Bible study began last Monday. I am in a group with three other homeschooling moms, spread from the midwest to the east coast: me in Missouri, down to Texas, and over to Virginia and Florida.
These were the thoughts I shared with the group onThursday. Nothing profound, but thought-provoking for me.
“Jesus, knowing their thoughts, took a little child, and had him stand beside him. Then he said to them, “Whoever welcomes this little child in my name welcomes me; and whoever welcomes me welcomes the one who sent me. For he who is least among you all–he is the greatest.”
I am praying that we will all be welcoming to our children, just as Jesus taught. I often get irritated with their childishness, yet my behavior is often lacking. Oh, the hypocrisy! Argh!
I prayed with my boys tonight as they were being goofy and un-unified after lights out, basically that they would have good memories to share 10, 20, etc years down the road and enjoy each other’s families as they get older.
These years are flying by and I so want my children to remember me as a mother that was “living and leading like Jesus,” as our study title teaches. Starting at about square one here, at least it feels like it!
