Things They Remember
That award started a conversation in the van on the way home that somewhat broke my heart. We were talking about things that we remember from our young life. Things that were said or awards we won. One of the older kids broke my heart with this. "I remember when I stood up for what I thought was right and told an adult that all the swearing was bothering me and they said I was too sensitive to get over it - I've never thought the same about that person". Woah. That was significant to them. Oh how our words can change a person. I felt a bit heartbroken that some of their sweet innocence was lost. That innocence that tells them if they tell an adult in a respectful way that something wrong bothers them they will be admired.
It was a moment that made me stop and think about my own words. How they will be remembered? I need to pray over my words each morning.
Oh the things they remember....may they be sweet and grow them closer to God.
