Growing LITTLE Horns
Mili finally has enough hair to put up in pig-tails. These pics were taken two different days (Tuesday and Wednesday). The women at the church went crazy over the two little horns sticking up on her head (some days I think they are real horns). We have to have "heart check" (a friend at church uses this with her three children) moments more often than I want to. Right now Mili is not old enough to understand it but she will. It is basicly a nice way to say, "your heart needs some attention because it is not on the right track". When I have seen my friend use it on her children it is quite amazing how well it works. It just makes them think about the ugliness (is that a word?) coming out of their hearts and into action.
I am thankful for some very strong Christian families at our church. I feel like I need that kind of parenting to look-up to since I am not at home with my family and friends that I have trusted and been around all my life (although Brian and I both grew up in great families who loved us and disciplined us accordingly). I would like to talk with some of the parents at church who have teenagers that are serving and making great choices in their lives. Brian is in a parenting class with some of the best parents in the church and I am always asking him to pick their brains while they are in small group time. I want to keep all my options open when it comes to Mili's future. Enough about parenting.
Holly Springs family, we love you and miss you. Can't wait to come home and worship with you guys. We will be home December 8th-19th (we will have two Sundays and one Wednesday with you all).
Love to ALL!!!
