This is the Day

Time goes by so fast.........it seems like just yesterday I was sitting on the living room of the house I grew up in playing Barbies and Gi Joes with my brother..........now I am sitting watch my boy and girl just starting their adventure of playing together as brother and sister.  Wow! 

3 years ago I had the joy of giving birth to my son Tian and 6 months ago my daughter Tessa.  And what a blessing each day with them is!  God truly gives us blessings when he gives us our children to enjoy and raise and as I sit and watch these 2 play it is my prayer that He would give me the wisdom and understanding in how to raise them the right way! 

Some days I worry about if I play enough with them, pray enough with them, feed them right, teach them the right things at the right time, discipline them right etc, etc, etc.   I think I need to read that book so I know what to feed them, I need to do that activity so they can learn their colors or I need to follow that person's discipline guide.  But then I hear the soft voice of the Spirit saying to me just love them and allow me to be your guide.  And so the worries vanish (at least for a couple hours:) 

As I spend these precious years with my little ones and watch them grow, grow and grow into the man and woman God created them to be it is my prayer to allow Him to guide me in the process.  And to also allow me to live the verse "This is the day the Lord has made let us rejoice and be glad in it."  I want to enjoy every day, moment and second of this time - playing legos, cars, eating PB and Jelly and cuddles before naptime.
