This summer will mark another exciting, memorable day for our family. On July 23, 2011 Steve and Kara will be united in marriage. Watching them grow and mature and their care for one another has been a delight; it is wonderful to watch a young couple not only plan their wedding but to plan their marriage.
As our kids were growing up, I prayed for their futures. For God's hand and wisdom to be upon them. For their hearts to be inclined to love Him. For the development of character that would make them godly loving husbands/wife. And for their future wives/husband , that God's hand would be upon them and that they too would be godly loving spouses. My prayers for my daughter remain the same as she finishes growing up.
Watching my kids mature and walk with God is so worth it all. It's the goal of raising them beginning even while they are in diapers...and learning to walk... or ride a bike...or read...God truly blesses parents through their children.
3 John 1:4 "I have no greater joy than this, to hear of my children walking in the truth."
