Yeah. What He Said!

I saw this quote on a bulletin board at church a couple of weeks ago, and was so encouraged by it. Then last week it was delivered right to my mailbox - on a flier from church.
Praying these words will encourage you and shape your perspective, as they have mine.

Remember that you are not called to produce successful, upwardly mobile, highly educated, athletically talented machines...Giving your children great opportunities is good; it is not, however, the goal of parenting. Christlikeness is. Above all, seek to raise children who look and act a lot like Jesus.

RYN: yep, I'm not a fan of clowns or anyone that covers their face really. I don't like long beards either. Why? Who knows. I just know they creep me out a little. :o)

O Mom - Yes. Particularly with the start of a new school year, when I feel pressured to 'get the kids involved' in 101 things which will assure them success...
You're welcome! *grin*

Jerri - A quote collection sounds like a good idea!

Jodi - You're quite welcome. I'll be referring back to this quote often, I'm sure!
