{Gift 58-February 27th, 2012}

Today, I'm thankful for the gift of my adorably sweet 16 year old sister, Melanie Rose and my mischievous 1 year old brother, Gideon John.  Melanie's pure heart, passion for Jesus and love of life inspires me every day!  And Gideon's crazy adventures all over the house keep all of us on our toes!!  Literally he's a full time job in himself...LOL.  But we love him tons!! ;)  One of Gideon's ALL TIME FAVORITE things to do is sit in Melanie's lap as she practices the piano. She's always so sweet and patient to let him bang on the keys during her songs. ;) He loves it and doesn't realize it's kinda difficult her to get her practicing in with his additionally keys. Makes me smile.  I love these two. <3

One hundred years from now
It won't matter
What kind of car I drove
What kind of house I lived in
How much money I had in the bank
Nor what my clothes looked like

The world may be a little better
Because, I was important
In the life of a child. 

"Many now are watching the footsteps that we take;
Many soon will follow in the choices that we make.
So let us then be faithful to be what we should be,
And leave a good example that they can clearly see.

 Be an example of the believers in word and in conduct;
Be steadfast in love, in faith, in purity of life.
For those behind us, let us stand within the gap and make a difference in their lives;
Be an example to follow Christ.

Let us then be watching the weary, day by day,
Looking to encourage and to lead them in the way;
To run the race with patience;
On Jesus fix their eyes,
And challenge them with excellence, that they might win the prize."  


"Let no one despise your youth, but be an example to the believers in word, in conduct, in love, in spirit, in faith, in purity."~ 1 Timothy 4:12


Never be too busy to invest in the life of a child...or let them play piano with you for a few minutes...they're only little for a little while. <3  Very few things matter for eternity...but this one does! <3  

Blessings on you and don't forget to give your little one a hug tonight!! :-)

With Love,
