The only thing better than getting the opportunity to be used by God to serve His people is to do it with my children!
Today I realized how much my boys are growing! As a mother I focus daily on what they still need to learn or work on. I spend a lot of time thinking about how much they need to mature and how at times they look like they are not getting what I’m teaching them!
My three older children were such great helpers as I served with my church family. We just had a Birthday Party for Jesus! It was a lot of fun, but way more work than I expected. The boys went in with me yesterday and helped set up. Today, the day of the event, they were a part of a skit performed for the kids, helped during the party and helped clean up!
It was great to see them set time aside for others! Most of all, it was great to see the joy it brought to their heart as they prepared an event for other children to enjoy.
I look forward to continuing to serve with them, even and especially into their adult years!
What has been your greatest experience serving with you children?
