Parenting, what a privilege and a greater challenge I doubt I will ever find. One thing weighing on my mind constantly is who these beautiful girls will become and how I teach them will translate into tomorrow.
My prayer for my little women:
Matthew 5:14 "You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven."
When I look at Claire, all bright eyed and smiling at a complete stranger, I think this is how it should be. To share love so freely. To love people with no reservations. This is who God has made her to be. My little lamp.
