Little Ones are Listening

I am glad we live in an age of information.

We can quickly know when things happen and that makes us quickly able to respond.

For most of us there is little we can physically do for the families in Conn.

But there is a lot we can do for our families here.

Our kids live in a scarry world.

We need to be careful how much of the news we watch and how much of it we let them watch.

We need to be aware of our conversations that they hear and the fb posts we make.

Our little ones are listening and all kind of things are running through there  minds. Things that are to big for them.  They are to big for us, so you know it is to much for them.

Make a point to pray today with your kids about all that has happened. Let them send cards to the school. Let them talk.

Then try to let them go on with their childhood.  We don't want this terrible act to steal anything else from anyone else.

And it isn't just the small children, our teenagers face such a sense of hopelessness when they see all that goes on around them. They wonder what can be ahead for them.

We need to be careful not to allow them to become overloaded with news and saddness and dispair.

The greatest way to honor these precious souls is to love the precious souls in our care.

Offer a word of hope today to a young person, find something or someone to praise.

I know I keep saying it but I believe it has got to be one of our mottos through this.

Romans 12:21  Do not be overcome with evil, but overcome evil with good.
