Now I’ve got everything for my dream life except the perfect children. Let’s talk about that.
The children in fairytale life are so well-behaved, and even if they aren’t, they are so remorseful when they’re not. I do not find or have found this to be always correct with my children.
I have three children. Yes, they are blessings.
However, these three little blessings have caused more emotions out of me than I knew I had. I’ve yelled, I’ve cried, I’ve been embarrassed, and sometimes I even just been numb, wondering when the phase they were going through was going to pass.
Parenting is hard work. It also can be rewarding.
When a child loves you, they love you. You never have to wonder if it’s real. They are amazing to watch grow and celebrate each milestone they go through. Just as they have a first, there is also their last. The last time you carry them because they learned to walk and the last time they need you to hold their hand because they are now a big boy/girl.
We must cherish every moment and remember that they’re still your child no matter how old they get.
When they get older, you worry way more, and you realize you can’t control them as once before. Children have to learn to live for themselves. I believe that has been my most challenging trial with my children. You have to let go and let them grow.
No matter how big they get, you will still find those proud moments where you think to yourself, that’s my child!
My children are not perfect, innocent or, corrigible half the time. They are though the loves of my life. I’ve seen way more good than bad come from them. To me, they’re irreplaceable. They are perfect for my fairytale!
“Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.”
I know children are a gift from the Lord. If you have children, you have been blessed.
Sometimes, you find yourself wanting to exchange your gift or return it all together, but that’s a different story.
I found that raising my children had some rewarding moments and some difficult ones. The only way I got through the hard times was by praying for them.
They will never get too big for that. Pray for your children always. It’s the best gift you can give them.
His scripture means that if I do my best to raise them the way he would have me to if they do go off the right path, they will find their way back to the road they need to be on with help from the Lord.
That’s how I interpret this verse.
I am comforted by the fact that God watches over my children night and day, and when I can’t see them, he does.
What are some of your favorite qualities your child/children possess? What do they do that makes you smile?What does this verse mean to you?
