The Best Advice I Ever Received
November 19, 2010
While thinking upon this question, my thoughts were, by whom and when was I given good advice!
The thought came to me "The Bible". Everything that I needed to know or still need to know comes from the Bible.
One specific time I am thinking about is when I held our 6 pound 12 ounce baby boy in my arms for the first time. I did want my baby boy…. I just didn't know how to raise boys. Somehow I thought I know how to raise girls but not boys. I was still having a tremendous amount of after pains and as I lay there in bed I just didn't know what I was going to do this this little bundle of joy in my arms. Some of the boys in my school I thought was out of control and my thought were "I don't want this little one to turn out like them". I started praying for God to give my wisdom how to raise him. I didn't know everything at ounce. By studying the Bible it gave me insight on child raising do and don't. Sometimes when I did the wrong thing at the wrong time I had to backup and try again or redo. Sometimes that is not an easy thing to do but in His arms we can make it.
I now have three sons now and still I have to trust HIM for answers and thank Him for them.
At this time I want to give a great big "THANK YOU GOD!"
