As I reflect on my baby’s milestones, his God-given natural abilities, his periods of frustration and his relentless nature; I am reminded of my need to grow and utilize my spiritual gifts.

I must keep my heart at a place that I will stand for truth, but also be willing to run across the street for the broken carrying the weight of her choice. When I forget how to do both, then I fall into dangerous territory myself.
