Adult Children

It’s an amazing blessing to watch our children turn into adults.  To see them use their gifts, sharpen their skills, make good decisions, give of themselves, and have a meaningful impact on the lives of others is astounding.

New parents often comment on how much more they understand God’s love after becoming parents.  But it doesn’t end when the child comes home from the hospital, or starts school, or gets married, or (I imagine) even when they die.   Every stage of childhood teaches a parent much about God and His love for us.

If anything, perhaps the lessons become more meaningful as we see our adult child’s actions and identify with the joy and pain our adult actions cause our Heavenly Father.
