Here's a few reflections on the kids this year:
Wow! Did you get through all that? Parenting this crew is definitely getting more challenging. It's a balance of trying to pull them in to give them a strong foundation, yet releasing them to discover and change the world. We fail often and are in such need of wisdom higher than our own. We are so blessed to have a God who is near whenever we call on Him and who gives wisdom generously when we ask. When we realize we've got nothing, we realize that He is everything!
Merry Christmas! "Be strong and courageous, do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you may go!" (Joshua 1:9)
