This past Sunday, we had a missionary in service with us. Later on, when he was visiting with us at our home, he shared the following quote.
I’ve been thinking about this quote a lot, and I believe it’s wise and true. Since we had children, my husband and I have tried all their lives to give them roots. We want their roots to go deep in God and desire them to have memories from their childhood years that they can look back on with fondness.
The day before this missionary came, I was reminded once again of a project that I had started on which will be a gift to my children.
I received this book as a gift a couple of years ago from our church. This book is broken down into months, and in each month there are questions to which I must write my answers. These are questions about my life and how I view things. Looking once again through the book, I saw that I had gotten half way through it before I left off writing. I am working on it again and aim to finish it in a month or so. It’s not only a part in giving my children roots, but it will be a nice keepsake for them to look back on from time to time.
Now as far as giving them wings……………………………………that will be a little more difficult. There is pleasure in seeing them fly, but I know the day is coming when they will not return to the nest. Ouch! I think I’ll enjoy them while they are still here. 🙂
