In truth...as I once heard Max Lucado put it..."only by God's grace and Jesus' blood do I NOT get what I deserve." Any good thing that comes is a gift and every trial is an opportunity to grow. Joy is the fruit of this knowledge.
As our children grow into young adults...our parenting role seems to change. Less discipline and more mentoring. I pray we are doing the right things so that they choose wisely their paths and whom they will serve. We are not perfect and fail miserably at times. I am glad they show us forgiveness. It is fun to do an occaisonal layout reflecting on who we see them becoming and how that makes us feel as parents.
I used the Smart Alec kit from The Daily Digi....that little monthly download is truly the best friend to a new Digi or Hybrid scrapper, like myself. Now- on to a paper page...after I FINALLY clean my Scrapcave. Don't tell my hubby- he will be so surprised.
Have a sensational Saturday.
