One of those moments...

Today, I watched my child make the right decision. One she shouldn’t have to be involved in, but she is. I’m sorry I can’t share the details. Without thinking it through… without concern for her own safety…she chose to put someone else above herself. She reacted immediately and therefore gave me a glimpse into her true character…her heart of compassion…her determination to see good prevail…that in a pinch she stepped out for another. Wow! At least for the moment I seem to have forgotten the attitude, the eye rolling and the battles…for the moment, I’m proud and even inspired…individually we can make a difference…one person making the right choice…one battle at a time…one child at a time. Have a blessed day!

Yay for Kenli's bravery and obedience. Yay for mom to be wise enough to take notice.

God is good to give us encouragement like you received. We especially need it during the tweenager years. I think high school girls are easier. They aren't in the middle of child and adulthood. I love your precious girl and her wonderful mom.

LIke us...they are struggling to come to terms with obedience, submission, and then boom...you see the fruit of all the your labor.....but mostly the Holy Spirit's and you go...."OH! THIS IS GOD IN MY CHILD." What a great moment! We are just older kids really, aren't we? I'm suprised by that precious child! God is in her! Hug her extra for Ms. Deanna.
