How thankful I am for conversations. It is surprising and refreshing to know that son number 3 is interested in the Lord, ever bit as much as the first 2. No big surprise really, but as a mother I worry. Today was a comfort to know that he is asking all the right questions about the Lord too. We chatted about all sorts of spiritual things and at the end of it I felt a little weathered. More surprising he didn't seem all that weathered at all. Most boys have a vocabulary of about 500 words a day...hehehe, and in that conversation alone we exceeded it, I'm sure.
I also expressed to him that I hoped that if something were ever to happen to me that I hoped and prayed that the very same conversations would take place with the younger boys. That everything he learned would need to be handed down to them as well. He smiled and reassured me....:)
So as the day begins to come to a close and Den is about to walk in the door after a long hard day I quietly consider motherhood. I prayed at the end of my conversation with Levi that I was able to reach his heart. I prayed that the Lord would give me wisdom in those types of conversations and thanked Him for the heart that I see Levi has. As the Lord draws my boys in the faith one by one I feel deeply thankful. What a peace to see the Lord being mindful of each one.
