Last night was a trying night for me. Caleb had no nap so he was miserable and ended up going to sleep at 6 pm (with me praying that he would stay asleep all night...he did). Then I had an uncomfortable moment with Rondell's step father (he judges my parenting a little more often than I would like and it just makes me...well angry).
After all had settled down and the house was quiet, it was just me and Jamison. She had been telling me that she wanted a life verse like the one I did for Caleb (see it here). This led to a conversation about what I feel a life verse means to a person and I explained why I chose the one for Caleb and why I've chosen Proverbs 31:27 for myself. I think she understood.
I thought this was a great moment to share my faith with Jamison. I want my children to develop their own relationship with God, not my relationship with God, but it's also important to me that I model what that relationship should look like.
I asked Jamison to think about what she wants God to help her with and that I would help her pick a verse that closely fits what's in her heart. So far she's talked about God giving her energy and that He loves her and she loves Him. I'll let you know what she comes up with.
