This post though, is one where I would like to share where I feel like something
We thought it may never sink in. But then the light started to shine! 2 nights ago we bought a small area rug for our living room. The kids thought it was cool; it was so fluffy and soft. Candice and Clayton were just walking back and forth on it talking about how lovely it was that we got this new rug. Candice said to Clayton "We sure are lucky that mom and dad got this for us." Clayton's reply was "It's nice that mom and dad bought it Candice, but God provided it for us. We should thank Him for it." and TOGETHER they bowed their heads and prayed (and it resonates in my head) "Dear Jesus, Thank you for this day. Thank you for keeping us safe. Thank you for this nice rug that you let mom and dad buy. AMEN."
SOMETHING is sinking in. Something is changing in their hearts. Something prompted them to do that, and it wasn't mom or dad. It was a genuine change. A thankfulness in their hearts to the Provider and the Giver of STUFF. I know my kids aren't perfect. They have a LOOOONG way to go before I can say that they finally got it all down. But for now, I am thankful and resting in the peace Knowing that God's word does not change; it does not return void. And all that we tell them sits in their heads somewhere and the Holy Spirit draws it out of them. I am so thankful that my oldest 2 have received Christ as their personal Savior, and that we can see evidence of the Spirit working in their hearts! I pray they stay soft to His pricking and pruning!
