Bone Sticking Truth

You all know by now that my oldest daughter is going to Kindergarten in the Fall.  The World is scary and Big and the Enemy looms large.  And yet I know I cannot protect my daughter from the realities of the world forever.  However, I can and should prepare her for them.  So yesterday, I started teaching her to have her own quiet time with God.  She couldn't wait to wake up and do it again this morning!  The only thing that prepares me for the world each day is spending time with my loving tender Heavenly Father, so I must teach her to do the same as she enters the big bad world.  Hopefully truths will stick to her bones.  I know how God takes the ugly and makes it beautiful.  Sin will probably stick to my child too, but He will clean her up again. And I let go of the perfect path, and lay her on the altar for Him.

I am learning a new discipline to get up early and spend time with God.  You find out more here.

  1. Hey! How did you go about teaching her to do a quiet time? I'm thinking about another dear friend who has a kingergartener in the fall... and I'm not sure how I would go about this for my own child - though that is a while from now!


I love to receive your thoughts. I am blessed and encouraged by them. May God bless your day today!
