HOME AND FAMILY

Keep your heart with all diligence, for out of it spring the issues of life.  Proverbs 4:23

Others may hide behind the curtain of life, timidly cringing at what tomorrow may bring.  Upon seeing a distant glimpse of what God may bring tomorrow, they shirk and shrink, and only reluctantly come out to take on the “adventure” presented to them.  But come they must, and when they do, they try not to feel the reality that they are in; so their feelings are masked, and we see a stoic and silent husband, a brutally fierce mother cuffing or scolding for not behaving properly at the proper time, a giggling daughter.  All miss out on the whole experience.

But, I want to feel the pang of a sentimental moment…the sting of a tear dropped from my eye; as well as the beaming sunny times.  I want to experience it all to the fullest, never masking the tender moment with a reprimand to the youngest child or a joke to another.
