My 13 year-old-son, my sister, my nephew, and me all went to the movies and out to eat on Saturday night. Just some things that my son said, etc., made me really question whether I was doing all I could. I did not like his attitude and disposition in reference to some things we were discussing, and it truly broke my heart. I prayed about it silently and then again on Sunday. I just felt so terrible in that I had not taught my son enough of God's word and so all the doubts just overwhelmed me.
Well, lo and behold, my son did something on Sunday that was the total opposite of all that took place on Saturday, and I thanked God for showing me and giving me the couragement that I needed. My son is a typical teenager, with all the hormones, etc, but what he did on Sunday showed me his gentle and kind side. He does have compassion and a willingness to give of himself over and beyond. I am proud of him, but more happy that we have Christ to lead and guide us. Thank you, God!!!
Just wanted to share this in case there is another mom out there that is questioning. Don't lose hope and know that if you are teaching your child in His way, He will bring him back to it.
