2015 Look at the new thing I am going to do

2015-The Year of AwesomeSince we see all of life as a learning endeavor -and also because it just makes more sense than a September-May schedule (in fact, school in the entire southern hemisphere does it this way, too)- with the favor and grace of God we actually start a new “school year” on monday!

Look at the new thing I am going to do. It is already happening [sprouting/springing up]. Don’t you see it? I will make a road [path; way] in the desert [wilderness; the return from Babylon is portrayed as a new Exodus] and rivers [streams/paths] in the dry land [desert; wasteland]. Isaiah 43:19 Expanded Bible (EXB)

Happy New Year, Enjoy the Fresh Start!!!

Show your kids you love them

It is surprising that many parents have trouble expressing love to their children.

Caring for our children is one of God’s plan for our lives as parents. It is how we follow the divine model of love.

When we are busy, struggling and life is hectic, it can be hard showing interest and express tender love.

However, we must change our thinking.

The Bible is the perfect place to seek advice. Galatians 5:22 tells us that the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace … what next? PATIENCE! Patience with ourselves and with our children.

Let your children know that you love them. Repeat and prove it until they believe it!

Remember that you are not dealing with an inconvenience, you’re raising a human being … a little child that comes from God…

» Beware that you do not despise or feel scornful toward or think little of one of these little ones, for I tell you that in heaven their angels always are in the presence of and look upon the face of My Father Who is in heaven. {Matthew 18:10}
