December 30, 2009 All glory goes to God alone, and here are the means He has used to shape me.
Parents who demonstrated "Tough Love"~ My parents were faithful to discipline and correct me.
A Dad who made me dream~ My dad would always take time to talk to me about what I wanted to do with my life and how I wanted to serve the Lord when I got older. He encouraged me to go out of my comfort zone and reach for the stars. He was always there to give me advice---still is(-:---and help direct me.
A Mom who gave me "Back Scratches"~ I still look forward to “back scratches” from my mom when I go home on leave. She lovingly took care of all us kids and at the end of the day would give us back scratches. She showed us how to serve, to be kind to others, and to live selflessly.
There is so much more I could say, but I shall sum up my thoughts with this: The little things we do today do make a difference in tomorrow, and little ones do see the little things done and it will impact their tomorrow.
