Coming back from a couple week break on the blog, (not on Facebook, twitter, or instagram, though!) to share with you a quick quote that I heard a while back that is coinciding with the Good Morning Girls study that I’m in now. This week we are talking about intentionality with our children and each of the verses have been rocking my world.  Attaching it to a picture of my kids made it even more real.

What a privilege it is to be a parent & to guide & instruct our children so that they may lift & love the world through Him! This gives me a whole new perspective & focus!

I encourage you to look at your children as current/future burden lifters. Take a picture of them and put that quote on it. When you pray for them, pray that specific thing. Oh, the little tools to administer grace and love that God has given us right under our feet! (sometimes, literally! ha!)
