But after reading these verses last night my prayer is that when Landrie "grows up" that she will live a life with the traits from these verses. To be a person who really loves, makes everyone feel like a family member, honors others and wants the best for them, works hard and serves Jesus well with an undivided heart. One who is full of joy and hope, patient when problems arise, and a person of prayer. One who shares and gives help wherever it's needed. I pray that we can instill these traits in her and remind her daily that it won't matter if you danced on a stage or sang in a concert. The love you shared from a servant's heart will make a difference in eternity. I want her role model to be the person Paul described in these verses. I believe this person should be a role model for all of us.
Today is my parents wedding anniversary. Always a hard day for my mom without my dad here. My parents truly showed us the meaning of true love. I just pray that today God will give my mom the comfort and the strength that she needs.
