Our Boy

Today's blessing came early. 6:30 am to be exact. The kids were getting ready for school and Anson had something to tell me.
"Mom, I told dad this last night but want to tell you too. On the playground the boys I usually play with were tripping people and each other. They thought it was a game, but tripping isn't allowed. So I walked away and played with some other kids."
I know, it seems like such a small thing. But as parents to hear that your 8 year old walked away from something he knew he shouldn't be participating in was huge. He DOES actually listen to what we tell him. He has professed salvation and sure has a tender heart, we are just loving seeing the Godly boy he is developing into.

Aww! Good boy Anson. Praise the Lord for his tender heart and the strength to walk away. That's tough but practicing it now sure is big for the future!

Good work Mom and Dad - "Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old he will not turn from it." Proverbs...:6 - now I forget the reference. hahahaha.

I'm an emotional mess I guess because reading this made me tear up. I have such a sweet little nephew!!!
