"Direct your children onto the right path, and when they are older, they will not leave it.   {Proverbs 22:6} 

What do you think of when you see all different colors of flowers mixed together? Someone might see a mess, and miss the beauty! Me, I don't mind a little mess when it comes to flowers, or anything else I guess. I have learned to live with a little dirt on the floor, or some laundry in the basket.

What I don't like are piles. You probably know the kind, dirty clothes that stand as tall as you do. Dishes that flow out of the kitchen sink, or dirt that is ground into the carpet from someone's cleats? These are the things that women can get a little crazy about. Have you ever left some "grown-up" kids at home while you went away on vacation only to find that there was an out of control party in the back yard the night before with kids throwing up in the bushes? I hate to bring this up, but I know some of you can relate. That summer left me with wanting to turn right around and going back to wherever we had been.

Many tears have been shed over irresponsible actions that lead to harsher consequences. But God! But God, He knows the start from the end, He knows the path that has been taken, and He only knows the way out! His faithfulness knows no end, and He will surely hear and answer the prayers of a mother's heart. The son who had the crazy party had a serious conversation with another godly young man last night about how they as professionals will impact the Kingdom of God with what God will give them. Responsible! What a difference a few years can make!

I'm not saying that there won't be some rough waters ahead still, but I thank God for allowing me to see that He is working in the lives of my children. Maybe you haven't seen this yet in your child. You have prayed for years and still you are not aware of any change. God knows! Call upon Him today, with all your heart, and ask Him to show you some progress in their lives, and then please share it with us! We love to hear about the wonderous works of God!
