Sometimes my days are so busy and rushed.
I fail to remember how thrilled I was when the LORD fulfilled a wish and
fervent prayer of mine, one I had petitioned for many, many years.
I promised myself when I brought our little blue bundle
home from the hospital, that he would never be
“the interruption” in my life,
but that raising him in the LORD would be my priority.
Here are some of my tips for keeping my promise to myself always at the forefront of my mind:
***Touch your children as often as possible.***
A little stroking of the hair or a snuggle on your lap as you type helps a child feel likeyou’re engaged with him/her while you interact.
Teach him how to do something unusual, like sewing.
Always smile at your children when they approach you.
and whisper the nickname in the child’s ear when you hug him/her.
Right Now our son’s favorite nickname is
It will change from time to time, but for now he lights up and smiles
when I call him my “Kimba”.
Time is fleeting, and these days with our young children will soon be gone. Take some time to reflect on how you will demonstrate the love you feel for them. The rewards will benefit beyond your expectations.
