so...i have a little story to tell
which prompted my question for this week.
my youngest daughter sydnie is full of
spunk and independence and this curiosity
and love for life that i admire beyond words.
i had the pleasure of taking her out on a date tonight
for what she so sweetly calls "tongue" food a/k/a thai food!!
I had great conversation with her about
our hearts and keeping our insides clean of darkness.
we talked about how there are times when the
lights inside of us start to flicker,
like a light bulb on its last leg....
but how we can pray and ask to have that light "fixed",
to shine a bit brighter.
we even talked about how sometimes
the light does go out...but it doesn't mean that it is forever....
that any type of light, small as it may be,
can overcome the darkness.
we talked about how it is truly our insides
that count...how maintaining and taking
care of what is happening in our hearts is what matters
we talked about how what is happening
on the inside will shine through to our outside...
and we should always work on our heart condition.
(i know mine REALLY needs a good
dusting and mopping now and again!)
so...i was thinking and wanted to know,
WHAT LESSON(S) DO YOU RECALL
LEARNING AS A CHILD AND WHO
TAUGHT YOU THAT LESSON?
i always remember my grandma telling me...
"Kolleen, if you don't have anything nice to say,
don't say anything at all."
and you know...my Grandma was so wise and
i look forward to learning about your lessons.
