Praises to my Kids...


It's rare I post more than one post a day, but something just happened and I have to share....

Sparing you a great lengthy and confusing story, I will say that I am SO VERY PROUD OF MY TWO OLDEST CHILDREN!!! All the "Safety First" reminders, long talks on watching what goes on around you while walking to and from school, and knowing there are some-pretty-shady-people-that-would- like-to-hurt-them-talks have so paid off! They ARE listening, and paying attention! Yay!

... Long story short...

The kids were still not home at 3:35, and I had lost track of time from about 3:15 (at which time I expect them home). When I realized they were still not home, I jumped into the van and drove the route in which they go to and from school.... no signs of my kiddos.... drive to the school, still no signs... okay, alot more worried now... Back at the house, the bikes and scooters are all there and garage door is locked? Strange. I unlocked the door, and the phone rings. It's the neighbor down the street, calling to let me know that the kids are there because they couldn't get in the house, and I didn't answer the door when they rang the doorbell. Praise to the Lord!

I don't know why I didn't hear the knocking or the doorbell, but they did as they had been told to do when in a time of trouble... went to a pre-determined safe house. And all was well. ...Thank you, Jesus, for watching over and my children.

To all you moms and dads that worry about the safety of your little ones- GOOD FOR YOU! But know He is always with them, and is watching carefully.... And always remind your kiddos to be aware of what is going on around them, and know what to do when they cannot reach mom or dad... Be safe.

Good for your kiddos and thanks for the great reminder. It's SO comforting to know our Father watches over them when we can't.
