When faced with life's challenges,
it is Important to Remember
that although Daniel was saved from the lions,
he was not saved from the Lion's Den.

Jake is Dangerous

I am watching my grandsons for a few days, so my writing will be a little sparse until they go home.  I must say, that is actually because I am busy answering questions and fixing snacks.  I am enjoying it all, and don't want to miss out.  However, yesterday we had a rather interesting day which I thought I would share.
We were coming home from church and Jake said, "Grammy, when can I cut my pictures?"
He meant the coloring pages that he had done in my notebook during the church meeting.  He wanted to cut them out of the book and give them as presents.
"After we go home and get changed.  Then you can cut them."  I replied to his asking.
"Actually," He said,  "You need to do it.  I am dangerous with scissors!"
Papa looked back at him through the rear view mirror.  "That's a good thing to know."  He said.

Oh yes, I can certainly imagine that this young man could be quite dangerous!  (Especially with sharp items!)   But I also I couldn't help thinking how wise this little boy is.  He knows what areas of his life are dangerous for him.  He knows to avoid them at all cost, and to let someone else help him through them.  What a great lesson for each of us to learn.  If we will only take the time to recognize and avoid those things that are dangerous for us.  Those things that can be physically, as well as spiritually unhealthy for us.  Those things that draw us away from the love of our Heavenly Father.
May we each recognize what makes us dangerous and do what we need to do to be better!

Micah 7:8
Rejoice not against me, O mine enemy: when I fall, I shall arise; when I sit in darkness, the Lord shall be a light unto me.

Isaiah 40:31 
But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

  1. I love the picture and the thoughts today. I think all of the children coming down are so intelligent and are quick learners. They are here to make a difference.
    Blessing sto you for a sweet post.
