S is for Sons

Rachael, Samuel, Elsa, Jonathan and Joshua
My son, My son, why are you striving,
You can't add one thing to what's been done for you,
I did it all while I was dying,
Rest in your faith, my peace will come to you.

For when I hear the praises start, I want to rain upon you,
blessings that will fill your heart, I see no stain upon you,
Because you are My child and know me, to Me you're only holy,
Nothing that you've done remains, only what you do for Me.

Keith Green- When I Hear the Praises Start

What can I say about my sons?  They are kind, funny, they love Jesus.  They are not perfect.. They are my string of pearls.

Good word for the letter s. Family is so important. Glad your sons mean so much to you.

Rachna Chhabria said...

I like what you said about your sons that they are your string of pearls. What you forgot to say was that you are the fine thread that holds them close and gathers them to your heart :)
