Family of Purpose

There is so much STUFF going on in our world today...

I gave up watching the news because I was so heart sick over all the deception, destruction, sadness, selfishness...it sometimes feels like this world is upside down...what used to be right and good, is now  often called old and ridiculous...

it can leave a person feeling rather hopeless after about 10 minutes on a news channel...

perhaps the media chooses to portray things that will only shock us...or maybe it is just the "norm" for some...

either way, this teacher & mom heart often wonders about those precious, innocent little ones of the future generations...

who are their examples...their role models...the ones that will instill in them a sense of integrity and trustworthiness...ones that will choose to do right, even if it means self-sacrifice...???

there aren't a lot of those types of people praised and plastered to billboards anymore...those types of character qualities aren't tweeting off of twitter or pasted on instragram...

and then I meet a family like this...


They may not have a reality TV show...they may just fade to the back...plugging along in this journey called life...

however...it's a FAMILY


...where dad loves mom...where children have a purposed respect for mom & dad...where love is spoken and shown wildly & unconditionally...where obedience is expected, and character is grown...where independence and responsibility are developed...

it's in families like this, that I see such hope...

people that are in it for the long haul...the ones that face the future...committed & together...

their children see a purpose-driven life in the hearts of their own family members...and because that place is safe, they will strive to develop that in their own hearts!

My hope is renewed!!
