God's Gift of Purity
Shared a sweet moment with Lauren reading The Princess and the Kiss. She had tears flowing down her cheek and said, "Mommy you didn't save your first kiss for our daddy." I had to explain how I once didn't have Jesus in my life and didn't make choices that honored him and that brought a lot of emptiness and heart ache. By God's grace I was able to heal and he showered me with his mercy and love. He blessed me more than I deserved by bringing daddy (Tray) into my life.
I than explained to her that she now knows the importance of saving her first kiss and that it is not just because mommy says so. God gives us wisdom on how to live a life that is God honoring because he loves us. When we choose to go our own way we are choosing to bring emptiness and a lot of misery into our hearts.
"love...comes from a pure heart and a good conscience and a sincere faith" (1 Timothy 1:5) NIV
I love that I can teach my kids at home and that I can share the word of God and his love for them all day!
