Ephesians 3:16-18

I pray that from His glorious, unlimited resources He will empower you with inner strength through His Spirit. Then Christ will make His home in your
hearts as you trust in Him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong. And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is (Ephesians 3:16-18).

Grace given from a child.

It is amazing how children are able to teach adults so much about God. Monday morning Landry put teeth marks on one of her cousins cheeks!  The poor child had tears streaming down her cheeks, because my child bit her!  I was sure Callie was not going to want to get close to Landry EVER again, but within seconds Cal girl was hugging Landry. I told Callie, she was such a big girl, and I was proud of her for loving and forgiving like Jesus.  There is something special about the simplicity of a child.  The way they love others without expecting anything in return, the way they trust people they care about, the way they can teach us daily about the Lord.

Callie and Landry

The love of a child!  Jude and Landry!  I love how Landry is holding him.

 I have also witnessed first hand, that we are born with a sin nature and we desperately need a savior! Sin is not something we need to be taught.  I want to be able to use every opportunity to teach Landry about our need for a savior.  I recently began reading Give Them Grace, and cannot wait to learn more about giving children grace in everyday life.  Maybe I will even learn to embrace in the grace God has given me in my life.

I'm a firm believer that life doesn't begin until you have a little one :) You learn SO much about life, them and yourself!
