To my children,

In answer to your question, what do I want from you:

~ I want you to see the needs of others and meet them when you should.

~Sometimes I want help, preferably without asking.

~I want time to have fun with you, not just facilitate it for you.

~I want you to respect and obey us.We really do have your best interest at heart.

~I want to trust you.

~I want you to tell the truth and to admit when you are wrong.

~I want you to cultivate a grateful heart. It will serve you well. It is one of the secrets to a contented life.

~ I want you to value your Christian testimony and the impact it has on others as one of your most precious possessions in life.

~I want you to learn to hear Jesus’ voice, to know His Word, to seek His  direction for your decisions, and to obey Him.

~I want you to know and love Jesus more than anything and to do everything you can to draw close to Him.

I love you, no matter what.

To my children, 

What is most important is a heart for God and a heart for people.

Pray for wisdom and common sense- own them-. They are priceless. Rachael_M_Colby_Tattoo_It_On_Your_Heart_Life_is_Good

Most of life is work. Accept it; deal with it. Learn to take pleasure and pride in a job well done. Do not allow yourself to become lazy or complacent in the natural world or in your spiritual life.

Excelsior- ever higher.

Ad astra per aspera- through difficulties to the stars, to excellence.

Make godly character your crown.

Be jealous for your soul.

Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it. Proverbs 4:23 NIV

Pursue holiness. Let God’s pleasure on your life be your joy.

Keep a humble heart and a teachable spirit.

I love you forever and no matter what. So does Jesus.

Mom
