These days I spend my time constantly directing, redirecting, cheering, scolding, applauding, correcting, guiding, and disciplining my children in the right direction. I've often thought that this is something I need for myself - someone to force me to apologize when I've been ugly or someone to place a hand over my mouth when I say inappropriate things. I am such a child. Who thought that I was old enough, smart enough, or mature enough to do this on my own? I am still a child: A Child of God

"How great is the love the father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of god! And that is what we are!" 1 john 3:1 (NIV)
