They're Watching You !
The picture above is of our youngest son shoveling snow while his infant son is watching from indoors. My heart is happy when I see my grandchildren learning from their parents how to work , and that work is not unpleasant, but a blessing & a privilege. I remember many years ago when our youngest son ( shown above shoveling snow ) was a very little boy. I happened to glance out our kitchen window and see him following my husband around and saw my son stop and deliberately rearrange himself to imitate my husband's walk and stance. That memory is forever imprinted in my mind and causes me to be thankful for a godly husband who is also a godly father & grandfather.
Fill your children's lives with men & women of good character & godly influence. Ask God to show you wisdom & discernment regarding the people you allow into your children's lives, and that includes t.v. shows , internet access, teachers and babysitters, video games. Your children count on you, the adults in their lives to love and protect them in a way no one else can or will. Our children are our heritage and our blessing. "train up a child in the way he should go, even when he is old he will not depart from it." Proverbs 22:6
