The word yesterday was HONOR.
I am participating in a 31 day challenge to bloggers everywhere to write for five minutes everyday in October. This challenge was issued by Kate Motaung’s link up. Join me everyday as I chart our progress (in 5 minutes) on the unknown adventure with a known God.
Well I messed up my challenge to get a post out everyday. 🙂 Please forgive me. Yesterday was a busy day coming home from Florida, and we got stuck at the airport for a little while longer than we wanted. But yesterday’s word was HONOR, and I want to take the opportunity to honor my parents.
“Honor your father and mother” Ephesians 6:2
While I was away on the cruise and Florida, my dad watched my son Daniel the whole time, which was a total of 9 days. My dad has never had the opportunity to watch my children before so this was a little bit challenging for him, but thankfully they both survived. 🙂 My dad and I have not always had the best of times, but in the past 5 or 6 years our relationship has really gotten closer. I am cherishing the moments that we learn new things about each other. I honor my dad. He is a wise man. He cares deeply about so much and I love him. He may be a little grumpy at times, but he sure is funny all the same.
After picking up Daniel from my dad’s and heading back to Toledo, we went to my mother’s for the night. We were able to spend some time with her and rest for the day. My mom is also a blessing and I honor her as well. She gives so much. She is always there for me, and anyone else who needs something. If she has it, she will give it.
I love both my parents and hold them in high esteem. Thanks mom and dad!
Tomorrow (Tuesday) we get busy.
