What a hope we have as mothers and fathers.  The tender effort we put forth to raise our children in Christ will be  rewarded.  It may not  look like it at times but this is a  scripture that we can hold on to in the hard times with our children.  The evidence is  there for  us to see in many instances.  I have seen  it in  my own house, having raised five children.  There comes a time when after the training, we have to let them fly.  Giving them their free  will and wings.  We must have faith that our children will not depart from  the training that they had. The sad thing is that many are not trained and are set out  in life to  flounder.  We as parents must not let this happen to our children.  We must train them up in the way of the Lord.  Then when they are grown we can sit back and watch them take on the  role of trainers with our  grandchildren.  It is a beautiful hope that we have and can hang on to in the toughest of times as long  as we did our  part.   I saw this mother swallow just chattering away at her baby bird, that appeared to be ready to leave home.  The Lord spoke this scripture into my heart when I saw this little family.mommy-bird-done

My desire is to share my photography, to honor the Lord, and send out His word to all who might read. My photo's will include a scripture,and I write a devotional for each entry. The very least that I can do for our precious Lord Jesus. I am a wife to Jerry, my wonderful husband. We have 5 children, and 7 granchildren.
