Praying for our teenagers.....

     I titled this blog post praying for our teenagers cause this is where I am at, at the moment.  I have older children, one is married and the other one is about to be married but for this post, I am talking about Stephen, my 16 year old.  You may have older and you may have younger children but I hope you are praying for them.  I promise you the devil is after them so we have to lift them up to God.
     I was given a copy of some stuff about praying for teenagers and I have compiled them in the list below....I hope it will help someone better pray for theirs or challenge them to pray for them if they don't.
Praying for Our Teens
What to Pray for Your Teens :
* A heart which personally and fully understands, embraces, and shares the gospel
* Reverence for God, and a passion to please and serve him
* God-honoring family relationships filled with respect, affection, compassion and cooperation
* Protection and strength to face moral temptation and cultural pressure
* Repentance and humble acceptance of correction
* Guidance for decisions about high school options, as well as future college and career
* Maturity to make the right decisions for the right reasons
* Wise priorities for using time
* Preparation for marriage and parenting – pray for their future spouses, too!

* Personal weaknesses: Every child has their own struggles, whether it’s lying, angry outbursts, disrespect, or  any number of other issues. I pray that God will shape their character and turn their weaknesses to strengths. * Thanks: Each child also has unique strengths that are God’s gift to our family. For some it’s charm, for others leadership ability or a sense of humor. I thank God for these special qualities and ask Him to continue to develop these characteristics in our children.* Ask your teens how you can pray for them!
     I hope this helps you and gives you ideas some more ideas how to pray for your teen.  The world we live in today, even the best raised Christian teens still face many struggles.  If we don't pray for them who will?  Also it is better to pray for them to stay close to God than to have to pray them back to God. 
God bless,
Pat

Happy 16th Birthday Stephen Austin Love!

From this little baby born on April 7, 1995 to the wonderful young man you have became April 7, 2011 Moma and Daddy were so blessed the day you were born and grow more blessed with each passing year.  I pray God will richly bless you this year.  Let Him be your guide and follow Him and do His will and you will be right where you need to be.  We love you! God bless, Moma & Daddy

What If?

Saw this on a friends blog and had to share-Before you gripe about another petty something about your spouse or child-think how how you would feel if you woke up without them tomorrow. Man this hit me in the face and really made me really think! :(
     Then, I found this quote above about what if you woke up today with only what you thanked God for yesterday.  Who or what would you still have?  Would you have your spouse, your kids, your friends, your home, car, anything?  Again, this really made me think and I ashamed to say I am not sure I like my answers to the above questions.
     I cannot change the past as none of us can but I am going to really work on changing my answers and my life.  I know I need to really work on this but I am sharing it in the hope it might help others as well.  
God bless,
Pat

Sometimes I wonder does anyone even read here.  I wonder if this blogs time has come and gone.  I sometimes think, well I will just write for me and use it like a diary of sorts.  I am just not sure what to do.  I really enjoy writing the blog but......
     I decided I am going to continue for at least the month of February and see what happens.  Since February is the month of love and my last name is "Love" and I am trying to decide if I love this blog anymore, I am going to to have a "Love" giveaway. All you have to do to be entered to have a chance to win is leave a comment on this post on my blog.  I will choose a winner from all the comments.


Until next time or until I choose a winner of the giveaway, Pat
