New Blog Header

A special THANK YOU to my sweet daughter, Julia for creating this pretty new header!!  She is so gifted with graphic arts and always does such a good job making things look nice! 

The verse has a special meaning to me.  Trusting God from my youth.  It is really possible to trust God from the time one is small all the way through life!  Some people today don't believe this anymore.  They seem to believe that letting children "sow their wild oats" is normal.  It doesn't have to be this way. 

God desires that children be raised up to know and love him.  He wants us to love and serve Him all the days of our lives. 

     2 Timothy 3:15 And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.

God has given to parents the responsibility to teach their children the ways of God.

Deuteronomy 6:5-9 And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.  And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart:
 And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.
 And thou shalt bind them for a sign upon thine hand, and they shall be as frontlets between thine eyes.  And thou shalt write them upon the posts of thy house, and on thy gates.

What a promise, what a blessing when children are taught to love God and follow His ways.

Isaiah 54:13 And all thy children shall be taught of the LORD; and great shall be the peace of thy children.

May your days be peaceful,
