I’ve talked about two of my kids so far and felt it was time for the youngest, my baby. Why is it the youngest always stays young in a momma’s mind? This young man is now a teenager, 13, and at 5’10’ has passed me up in size. Well, maybe height, definitely not weight.
My youngest is a gentle soul, kind and compassionate. He never has needed a whole lot of correction. I don’t know if that is because he learned from his siblings w
hat NOT to do, or if, after rearing 3 others, was just too tired. Who knows? But he has been an easy, non-complainer kid, who goes with the flow and takes whatever.
Being a teen, he is into video games, but has recently become an avid reader. (Yea!) He loves to play basketball and has developed some good skills and is really fun to watch.
He is one of those kids who is invited over and parents say he is one of the nicest kids ever. I’ve been told by parents that my son i
s the only one who can get along with their kids. Maybe that’s because he is unflappable and can take just about anything that comes his way. He can take it without retaliation. I know in time he will learn what to let go and what to take a stand on.
I am proud of this young man and who he is becoming. He has given his heart to the Lord and has many traits that ring of being a Christ follower and for that, I am thankful. May God continue to strengthen him and lead him. May the Lord provide good friendships that will help keep him on a good path.
And may God give me wisdom to lay out a path for him to see God more fully and fall completely in love with the One who holds him in the palm of His hand.
