sometimes the best worship.... {hawaii mom blog}

'
sometimes the best worship sessions i have with the kids are in the car. stormie on air drums, kaleb on air guitar, baby J on the robot and me and hillsong on vocals.

i love watching them sing out to the lord, loud and joyful. praising him by reaching their little hands to the heavens. it is such a good feeling. a relaxing feeling. a secure feeling - like i know they'll be ok when they grow up. secure in themselves and their values.

having your own kids, gives you a whole new perspective on trials I put my parents through as a kid. in the car i started to think of all the times i veered away from god and the values my parents gave me. it made me sad to think of how badly i may have hurt them. then it crossed my mind that it if hurt them, imagine how bad i hurt our heavenly father. imagine how betrayed he felt. i said it before and i'll say it again - thank you jesus for your grace.

Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it. Proverbs 22:6

  1. Im so proud of you and how you raise your family. And to think of where or what we might have been if it wasnt for mom and dad to raise in a Godly household.
