Word Filled Wednesday

Love the Lord with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength.  These commands I give you today are to be upon your hearts.  Impress them upon your children.  Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you sit down and when you get up.  Write them on the door frames of your houses and on your gates.  Deuteronomy 6:5-9



Sam and Daddy (with Zach just out of the picture) spending quality time together!
 We had the opportunity to see the movie Courageous this past weekend.  I wanted to jump up at the end with a big "I will", but I restrained myself.  The statistics reported in the movie about fatherless homes were sobering.  Are you are Daddy (or Mommy)?  Take the time to make the most of the few years we are given with our kids.  They are the most important legacy we will leave on this earth.  If we lead them to a relationship with Christ, they will carry His name into the next generation.
