One of my boys got his little feet caught under the accordion partition wall at church during service, and while I tried to pull him out, the wall swung back and forth. His dad had to push from the other side to free him. The boy wasn’t crying but was enjoying himself very much! He was always curious in his world of adventure.

The teen years were difficult, very challenging. I didn’t know the Lord then as I do now, and I know I would have made better decisions in those years with the wisdom of the Lord guiding me. But, I gained a new appreciation and understanding of my parents when they were trying to raise me. We are all genuinely doing our best with what we have inside of us at the time.

I pray for every parent out there who is down on themself for not being perfect, for there is no such thing. Today’s youth face challenges their parents never experienced, and parents face challenges they never dreamed of. The sooner we realize that the sooner we gain the peace to enjoy our families and have the courage and diligence to create a new legacy of honest, Christ-like love.
