A mom’s dream,
Could be a clean living room scene.
But actually it was working with the TEEN who helped rearrange and CLEAN. (Such is the scheme to plan a football watching party scene).
A mom’s dream,
Could be chasing her own dreams.
But actually it is sending her child off away to their own – then exchanging text messages of beautiful sunsets scenes… and a cooler full of ice creams. (Yum)
A parenting dream is to see children grow and financially succeed.
and yet we don’t want them to be in a rush, nor have worldly success greed.
Surely the only thing FOR our children that we REALLY need,
Is to help them to TRUST God, LOVE Jesus, and understand and FOLLOW the Holy Spirit’s LEAD.
Live in Faith.
Long for God’s embrace.
Pray too to grow in Grace.
Reflect God’s Glorious Face.
For we do wish for our children to understand FORGIVENESS and to grow in their FAITH.
This mom loves to see each child’s face.
This mom longs for each child’s embrace.
This mom’s best dream is to one day see them in Heaven’s Forever Scene… With God, Face to Face…
Face to Face.
Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass [reflecting] the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord. 2nd Corinthians 3:17-18
If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast,[b] but do not have love, I gain nothing.
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when completeness comes, what is in part disappears. When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me. For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.
And now these three remain: FAITH, HOPE and LOVE. But the greatest of these is LOVE. 1st Corinthians 13
