Today was an all around good day for a number of reasons; however, joy burst forth for me twice today because of the actions of my sons.
My middle son shared with us today about feeling moved in his spirit because of a speaker that he heard on child trafficking today. He’s already pursuing becoming a counselor. Now, his heart feels he might be purposed to counsel children. He asked for pray for direction and guidance in this.
I’m already proud of him and who he is becoming, the choices he is making and how he is following Jesus. This simply reminded me of how excited I am to see God at work in the life of my son and to witness the Spirit shaping and transforming him to be the man God intended him to be from the start.
Then, my older son called my daughter to invite her to join him for a concert. He got free tickets and thought of her, knew she would have a blast.
That’s so him! He’s giving, cares passionately for family, even when he argues with you. He’s spontaneous and fun, and he’s living life to the full as a grad student about to take on the world as a teacher, following his heart, his skills, his calling.
Again, my heart was leaping with joy. How good it is for a parent to have the privilege of watching their children be who they were meant to be!!!
