You always pray that your kids will grow up and make good choices and have hearts that are beating after the ways of God. Every now and then we get a glimpse of that.
Today I read an email that my soon-to-be-13-year-old, Megan, sent to her relatives as they were asking for ideas for birthday gifts. She wrote:
"i was thinking last night after i had already made my birthday list and had a sudden thought come over me. i have so much stuff already that this year i don't want anything. take the money you would usually spend on me and put it some where its needed. you use it for food or clothes or, what i would suggest, give it to a local charity.
"don't forget to do good and share what you have with those in need, for such sacrifices are very pleasing to God. ~Hebrews 13:16
"And just in case you were wondering I am NOT in need. LOL!"
Megan doesn't read my blog, and if you know her, don't say anything to her about this. Just celebrate, as I am, that God is at work in her heart to make her into a woman of God.
