Trials teach us what we are; they dig up the soil, and let us see what we are made of. ~Charles Spurgeon

Sweet Conversations

Tonight at bed time my husband and I found ourselves in a sweet sweet conversation with our girls.  One question led to the next.  Before we knew it, we were talking about halloween.  God was not kidding when He said that children are a blessing from the Lord.  It is such a privilege to raise these girls.  Education (and I am not just talking about academics) is a passion of mine.  I loooooooove these kinds of questions, I live for these kinds of conversations.  I also found myself being completely blessed by what my husband was saying to the girls.  I have to admit I had a bit of pride in my heart, as if what I was going to say was going to be better.  I didn't fully trust in what daddy was going to say because we had not fully discussed the topic yet so I assumed something else.  In other words...I did not think the best of him.  I was humbled and so grateful that God let the night go the way it did.  If you could have heard their little prayers tonight.  My heart is full.  The Lord has encouraged me tonight.  I needed that, and He knew it.
