An Idea Borrowed

Years ago on a radio program someone shared that they read a chapter in Proverbs every day. Since there are 31 chapters and the longest month has 31 days it allows you to read through Proverbs on a regular basis. I use it as the launch pad for my personal worship time and branch out from there. On this blog I will try to share some of the insights I have in the Word. I will try to organize them in the archive by reference.

A Spot of Gladness

(Pro 23:25 KJV) Thy father and thy mother shall be glad, and she that bare thee shall rejoice.

When I am in one of my pity pot moments it always helps me to think of the blessing my children have been and are.  Sure, they have their moments, like when they destroyed my prized ukulele, but overall they are daily miracles.  I could only wish that every parent could feel the same way.  I hope my children feel the same way.

I once said I would write my book on parenting when my children turned thirty.  I figured by then I could speak with authority.  I don’t think it will ever get written because I am constantly reminded of “there but for the grace of God, go I”.  I have watched other people raising their children.  Many I have shared the journey with.  I think they did a stellar job, but somehow it didn’t work out the way they though it would.  My children didn’t either but that has usually just been unexpected blessings.

So?  Praise God for His blessings and do your part.
