Do you all think about your children to-be? I can’t help but think about mine often. Lately, my future son-in-law has been on my mind specifically and I can’t shake the questions I have.
What will they be like? Will my children choose well? Will we naturally love each other? Or will it be a bit more work? Will they take well to me? Or will their tendency be to dislike me?
This boy…what kind of man will he be? Will he love my daughter like Christ loves His church? Will he care for her? Will he treat her with honor?
The thoughts can be incredibly overwhelming. But in all of that, I have made a vow to myself to always pray over these people. Their character, their parents, their childhood and the kind of man/woman they will become.
All the while, doing my very best to raise children who love and value marriage for the sanctity that it is. What a tough gig this parenting role is!
