Teaching


"Whenever I had anything, and saw a fellow-being suffering, I
was more anxious to relieve him than to benefit myself. And this
is one of the true secrets of my being a poor man to this day. But
it is my way; and while it has often left me with an empty
purse, which is as near the devil as anything else I have seen,
yet it has never left my heart empty of consolations
which money couldn't buy, the consolation of having
sometimes fed the hungry and covered
the naked."

-Davy Crockett

As I teach my children everyday, what do I most want them to learn?
To worship the Lord,
to serve Him,
to show His love to others,
to have compassion,
to show kindness,
to be selfless...

To teach them, I must model
To teach them, I must do and be
Lord, help me
to worship You,
to serve You,
to show Your love to others,
to have compassion,
to show kindness,
to be selfless...

Thanks for the comment on my blog, Amy! :) I have been to the tri-cities area... but it was about 10 years ago! I may soon have family living in Eastern WA though, as my brother is marrying a lady in Moses Lake and will be re-locating somewhere over there next year. (The rest of my family is in Ohio!) Anyway, just wanted to let you know I appreciated your comment. How fun that we both have little Baby Ruths -- although they're not really babies at this age... ;)
