It Is Friday~The Day Christ Was Crucified

  We know Jesus died Friday, but praise God the grave could not hold Him!

Let us remember why.

All for us.

Our Children Can Have Peace

“Parents, pray that God may crown your home with grace and mercy.” Billy Graham

One of the things I remember is the scripture from above when I pray for my adult children, grandchildren. I look at this promise from God that He will teach my children and great will be their peace.

But I also remember that the example I set for my children is important. Children are a wonderful gift from God and we are to teach them about God so as they grow they will make good decisions.

This doesn't mean they will be perfect, on the contrary, they will probably make mistakes, just like we did growing up. But another promise I remember from God is to "Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it." Proverbs 22:6

Praying For Our Children

"May the Lord bless and protect you; may the Lord’s face radiate with joy because of you; may he be gracious to you, show you his favor, and give you his peace." Numbers 6:24-26

Every loving parent wants to protect their children~to keep them safe all their lives. That is why parents pray and ask for God to bless them and protect them.

Not a morning begins or a night ends that I do not pray for my children, their spouses, and their children. They are precious to me.

But I also know how precious my children are to God too. He was gracious to loan me these beautiful children. I am ever so grateful. I want to be sure that even though they are grown,  I still lift them up to the Lord day and night for protection and blessings.

Blessings to you and your children!

Do You Let Your Child Know You Love Them?


“Children are a gift from the Lord; they are a reward from him.”Psalm 127:3

Do you treat your children like they are a gift from the Lord?

I hear fathers at football games hollering at their child if they make a mistake whle they are on the field. I always turn to look at that father, wondering if he has any idea how he is hurting his son and their relationship. Without knowing it, hopefully the father doesn't do it deliberately, he is tearing down his son's confidence. He is also embarrasing his son. And He is treating the child as an object.

You see, children want to make their parents proud. But when you are tearing them down, you are saying to them you can only be proud of them if they are doing great in the game.

Evidently you don't look at your child as a gift from God. Take a good look at your child. He/She  needs love and guidance from you. 

Put your arms around them. Tell them how much you love them and how proud you  are of them and that they are your children. That will do more for your child than if they won a thousand games.
