They are good friends these two,
laughing over a game of peek-a-boo.Sharing a joke only they understand.
Jude using his strength to guide her to a *safe* spot for the bike.
Or are my words doing more than their fair share of the teaching?
Is it helping her to understand what that looks like in a Godly marriage?
Am I teaching her the right way to handle the disagreements that will come up?Am I teaching her how to be gracious towards and forgiving of others when things don't go her way ?
Is she learning about compassion and mercy and love from me?
Am I showing her how to parent in a Godly manner?
What is it that she is going to remember once she walks down that far away aisle and starts a life of her own?
I pray that I pave that road well for her,
that God will take her and shape her into His child,
despite my stumblings and failings,
and even despite my best efforts.
Can't you just picture them, 50 years down the road,
talking about their day over a bowl of chocolate chips?
