Our ceiling, his floor

   Being new parents of a teen in today's world can be tough. I am in constant prayer lately trying to catch my breath at the amount of temptation and well, yucky stuff the world and the evil one can expose or confront our family with. It can certainly make a heart heavy. I'm grateful my God knows exactly what we go through daily and has equipped us with His word to extinguish these down right annoying flaming arrows of the enemy!

   I am also grateful for the few friends I share fellowship and faith with through the Holy Spirit! What in the world would I do without those precious ones! You know who you are!

   Here is a blog of Thank YOU for teaching your kiddos in my young man's sphere of influence about Christ and the GOOD stuff! Thank you for correcting our son gently and requiring manners and respect. Thank you for teaching your little girls to be modest in their clothes and not chase our son like yesterdays snickers bar! Oh dear im being transparent! Oh and Thank You for expecting and telling our son to treat your daugters with respect and honor!

    Thank You for praying over your kiddos and for mine as he navigates these tumultuous waters! Thank you for mentoring and teaching him to a higher standard then the great compromises of our day. Thank you for filling up your kids with JESUS instead of everything else that never ever satisfies. You are a treasure and a light to us! Your children bring peace to my soul when I hear of all the character God is building within them! When our son fellowships among you its like a cool drink of water on a hot day!

    I am encouraged when your kids they take the plunge to trust Jesus with their whole life and in prayer when they are still unsure or stumbling like we all do. In this prayer I know and I hope you know that you are never alone.

   Keep up the good fight! I am so very grateful for you! Grateful that Christ is first in your family and even when the world does not care if kids go one way or another, you put on the full armor and simply STAND.

 May God's great mercy and Grace encourage you today as you raise them in the way in which they should go! To God be every ounce of Glory!
