But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord. – Joshua 24:15
This verse was Keith’s favorite, one that he sought to guide our family by throughout his life.
In light of his feelings about this verse, I think he would be pleased by how his boys spend Father’s Day today.
We arrived at church early so that the two older boys could practice for worship band. They are often on stage, leading the congregation humbly to the Lord’s throne. Today, I had the great joy of seeing them on stage together…working together to make sure the worship was well orchestrated and pleasing to God. I cried those special Mom tears.
Meanwhile, back in the church kitchen, my younger two boys were helping prepare the breakfast as they do each Sunday. Each week, they help make breakfast and a bag lunch for a group of children we serve with a bus ministry. More Mom tears.
As a mom raising boys alone, I constantly pray that I am doing the right things to make sure they are learning to be men of God in the image of both their earthly father and their Heavenly Father.
Mornings like this morning give me confirmation that, with God’s help, they are.
And I thank the Lord mightily for this! To Him be the glory!
