When my now 14-year-old daughter was 3 and her younger brother was getting into everything, she asked, “Mommy, can we put him back, now?”
Deciding to take this opportunity as a teaching moment in how siblings should treat each other, I explained to her that we could not put him back – that her brother was a gift from God.
She looked up at me with her big blue eyes and responded, “I understand, Mommy. God didn’t want him either.”
The sole purpose of a child’s middle name is so he can tell when he’s really in trouble.
Thought for the day
You were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord.
Before and after — that’s the story of grace.
