Tagged...

My friend Tisha tagged me...this one took some thought. Whoever wants to do it, feel free!!!

5 things I want my kids to know:
-They are each an amazing gift to me.
-No matter what I will always love them, and there's nothing they could do to ever change that.
-The one and only answer to this life is Jesus...don't look for it anywhere else, because you will fail.
-Don't sweat the small stuff, or the big stuff for that matter! In the end, none of it will be important!
-How blessed we truly are!

5 things you want to tell your children when they grow up:
-I did my very best as your mom. I failed many times, but I gave it the most valiant effort that I could.
-My most important job was being your mom, and through all the hard times, I still loved it.
-I tried to provide the best life I could for you, and teach you what really matters in this life.
-The one and only answer to life is Jesus...don't look for it anywhere else, because you will fail.
-With God, ALL things are possible.

5 things you want to tell your children before you die:
-My life was made complete, because each of you were a part of it.
-I'm so proud of you!
-I love you with all of my heart.
-This isn't goodbye...this is "I'll see ya later...gators!"
-The one and only answer to life is Jesus...don't look for it anywhere else, because you will fail.

5 things you want your children to know before they die:
-peace that the freedom of Christ offers.
-just how freeing forgiveness can be.
-that they were made out of love.
-the love of a father and mother...even if the definition isn't "textbook family"
-The one and only answer to life is Jesus...don't look for it anywhere else, because you will fail.
