2011 Gratitude Challenge - November 3rd




Today is day 3 of the 2011 Gratitude Challenge, and today I am very grateful for my children.





I have been so blessed with the two children I have. God gave me such wonderful children.  I love homeschooling them. I love teaching and training them. (OK, so I am not that consistent at the training and discipline part, but I am trying harder.)

I enjoy playing games with my kids, and we all love to scrapbook! My kids love playing legos together. My daughter has recently started teaching my son (6) to scrapbook too! lol

We go to Hobby Lobby usually once a week, and we each take our coupons and get something to scrapbook with. My kids love it. 

My kids fight with each other, and are not 100% obedient at all times, but they are very sweet, and they have very sensitive hearts. They love God, and that's all I can ask for. I know I need to be better at teaching them more Bible and character training, and that is something I am working on. 

But I love my kiddos, and I wouldn't trade them for anything in the world.

I am also thankful for the baby that I will get to see in Heaven one day. It still hurts to think of losing my baby, but I have come a long way, and am actually grateful that God allowed be to bring that babies life into this world. I know that we should praise God in everything, so I am praising Him even for this.

So I am grateful for all of my children, here and in Heaven. Thank you Lord for all of the blessings you have given us.

Rodna you have a beautiful family!
This is much like a post I have coming up. I'm thankful for my babies in heaven. NOT that I dont wish they were here with me, but trusting in God and knowing His ways are not ours, I trust Him with all my heart.

Martin Luther: b. 1483-1546: "I am very much afraid that schools will prove to be the great gates of hell unless they diligently labor in explaining the Holy Scriptures, engraving them in the hearts of youth. I advise no one to place his child where the Scriptures do not reign paramount. Every institution in which men are not increasingly occupied with the Word of God must become corrupt."
