When I started this blog (this online diary), it was at the suggestion of my youngest son. He is my inspiration. Befitting of every mother. I look to both of my sons with astonishment. With love. With an ever growing respect for where they are and from whence they came. Nothing in life is ever easy. After reviewing one of my favorite Bible personalities I say to myself "Mmm they were doing these things back then?"David's life has been chronicled since he was a boy. When he became a man he was like many of us. His missteps caused lots of pain. As he aged his children were his life's blood. He loved them despite their faults. Some of them went on to make him very proud. As this day begins, remember our children are our future and all we can do is love them as many before us have done.
1 Corinthians 13:4-7 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
