It’s Mikaela’s big day today. We all woke up way earlier than the alarm clock did. Mikaela gobbled up her breakfast and was eager to get into her uniform…
Looking back at today. Its a lot for a 5 year old to take in. Leaving her parents and spending a big part of the day in a foreign environment with people she has never met before and expect to interact with them. Being an introvert, even I struggle at the best of times up until today about doing such things at conferences! We are SO so proud of our little warrior.
“You shall teach them to your children, talking of them when you are sitting in your house, and when you are walking by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise.” – Deut 11:19
The above verse reminds us that we have now even lesser face time to teach her THE way. We must be more diligent. When we are sitting in our house, when we are walking by the way, and when we lie down, and when we rise up. Every minute now is precious with her. Face time with her will only reduce as she grows up. As she wants to spend more and more time with her peers even after school. Not only do we need to teach her, we need to model it for her to see… God’s way… To pray that it is enough to guard her from the world. And to pray that God will do the rest to lead her to the way that will ultimately bring glory to Him as her name says – Mikaela: “Who can be like God”.
“Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.” – Prov 22:6
