17 months old!!

Our little girl is 17 months old's so hard to believe! Oh to grab each moment and make the most of them. To instill in her a gentle spirit, a generous heart, a submissive mind...Holy Spirit come guide us and make us parents that teach our little one godliness, not worldliness ~ love for the eternal things, not for those quickly passing temporal things~to impart a love for God's bride, not out of duty but out of delight!! The task, huge...the responsibility, weighty~but the reward will be a daughter who can say with all confidence...

"The Lord is my light and my salvation-whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life-of whom shall I be afraid?"
Ps. 27:1
"We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure!"
Heb. 6:9a

"I am part of a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that I may declare the praises of Him who called me out of darkness into His wonderful light."
1 Peter 1:9
