Training Our Children

Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it.
Proverbs 22:6

This morning I was putting away laundry in Paxton's room while Paxton lay on his play mat and Maddox played with toys on the floor next to Paxton.I heard Maddox talking to Paxton saying things like "hi brother! whatcha doin?" Then the sweetest thing occurred. Maddox began to pray with his little brother, saying "Thank you mommy! Thank you Daddy! Thank you Paxton! Thank you brother. Thank you fun! Thank you Jesus. Ummm, Amen!!" I stood in the hallway listening as my heart swelled and my eyes filled with tears. As I entered the living room Maddox sat there beside his brother, holding his hand, talking to Jesus and thanking HIM for his family!!! My heart is full of joy knowing our oldest boy is drawing closer to our Savior and leading his little brother in the same direction!!
