After a particularly trying day with my girls, ages 4 and 3, I met John at the door with a long lament. When I finished he said these immortal words, “Some day these girls will be your best buddies and you will enjoy every minute you have with them.”
Years later I am admitting, as I have to do so often to John, “You were right.” What a gift back to me are these children I’ve been blessed to stay home with, to love and educate as priceless treasures, as though they were (THEY ARE!) royalty. My lamentations gave way to praises a long time ago, and today Rebekah Parker will grace all listeners as she joins me on The Homefront Show!
Look at your lament as a leading. That’s Part I of today’s Homefront Show Broadcast on http://www.1360am.co at 2:00 Mountain Time.
Rebekah Parker will be on with an infusion of joy from Sheila Walsh, I’ll answer the question, “Which is more deadly, typhus, typhoid, or selfishness?” and Real Man John Parker may chime in about something brilliant.
The aforementioned lament is about handling major differences of opinion with other Christians, and how a lament can either be a fearful road to nowhere, or the impetus to get aboard God’s Love Train and have an adventure!
There’s more, such as why studying Benjamin Rush’s life would be a great home school project, and my favorite part of David and Goliath’s story, and why Zorro rocks. Perhaps the most important part is where we understand the difference in being disappointed in a child, vs. for a child, and how to communicate this to bring healing to all parties.
Thanks for tuning in today at 2:00: http://www.1360am.co
