Boyhood

It won't be very long before my boys are men. That means we have a lot of training to do. A lot. So many things to teach. So many things to encourage. So many things to instill a love for. And, because they are boys, it often means we have to say it over... and over... and over again. :) Ever notice how Proverbs says "Listen, my son." It takes time & lots of training to get those boys to focus! Sometimes my head spins with all we need teach! I'm so thankful for a heavenly Father to take all my concerns to! I'm so thankful my sons have God's Word to study.

And... I'm so thankful that for today, my boys are still boys. I do not need to teach everything today. Or even tomorrow. In fact, I'll never teach it all! But I can point them to the One who can. I'm also grateful that for today, my boys have time for play & imagination. Those are special gifts God gives children.
