Sprinkle in Some Right

July 22, 2010

I am really enjoying (Freddie's) vacation week. We went to the camp last night and I cooked a chili over an open fire while Freddie and the kids fished off of the bridge. Aubree caught her first fish- a "poly-wog". LOL. It was really enjoyable to be able to get away from the "noise" of life, even if only for a few hours. No TV and no radio and no internet can be a blessing! We didn't want to leave, but, we had to get back home because this year, Freddie is spending his vacation catching up on his "honey-do's" with bits of fun scattered in for good measure.

I returned home to check my blog (my baby) and felt blessed to see so many people reading it. I hope everyone is enjoying reading it as much as I enjoy writing it.

I want to share a blessing with you. Everyday I check my email inbox for a devotion that I have subscribed to. And more than once, the devotion of "today" is about the blog that I wrote "yesterday". And this morning was another case of such "confirmation", as I like to call it. It brought me to tears because I could almost hear the audible voice of God telling me that I am doing right by my children. I know I am not perfect at parenting. I do mess up, and sometimes big. But, I believe that if I can douse them with enough "right" parenting then it'll all be okay.

So, be encouraged as I am. Just try your best, in spite of your failures, to sprinkle in some "right" as often as you can! We are doing okay guys! We are doing okay!

Deuteronomy 6:7 says, "And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up." This verse is speaking in regard to instructing our children in God's Word. It also shows the importance of taking advantage of all times during the day to interact.
