All Day I Dream About...SOCCER!!!

As a child was there anything that you were interested in? I mean like seriously interested in? I always wanted to be the Little Mermaid. No joke. I'm serious! Stop laughing, lol. I would wear a red sweater on my head and pretend that I was her. As I got older I realized that I wanted a fairytale life. 

As I'm here now watching my own children with their child dreams I take joy in watching them and remembering myself at that age. My son who is 6 is fixated with soccer at the moment. He likes golf too. But that's because his dad does. But he is IN LOVE with soccer.

Look at that face!! Absolute Pure Joy!! I love seeing my little man like this.

My daughters are in the dress up phase of their lives. They love to be princess'. The make up, jewelry and clothing is all they can get enough of. Yesterday my Lylian came up to me and told me "Mommy, I need glass slippers. We need to the store and you need to buy glass slippers for me." All I could do was laugh hysterically.

Lylian(above) also loves to swing. Every time we're outside she races to a swing. Any swing that's available she'll take it hostage and demand that one of us push her on the swing. It's adorable.

Back to Seamus. Ok I'm going to brag a little bit. It's wrong but I love him so much and I am so proud at how he has adapted to school becoming one of the best readers in his class and striving to be the best he can be at everything he tries. But I love this picture 

He looks like a little professional doesn't he? As long as he's happy and doesn't lose his interest and love for this sport we will back him all the way. 

That's all you can do really. Is love your kids isn't it? Raise them in Christ and love them unconditionally. That's what God does for us. No matter how we fail, or no matter how much of a lack of trust we may have He is there for us loving us through every step of the way. None of us are perfect. That's why He sent His son to die for us. John 3:16. Because as imperfect beings there is no way that we can be in His presence. God cannot tolerate sin. Because He is perfect. This is repetitive but NONE of us are perfect. "If any one of you  is without sin, let him be the first to throw a stone at her." John 8:7. This was in reference to a woman who was caught in the act of adultery. Back in Bible times that sin was punishable by death of stoning. Jesus stepped in and saved her. But we can love, as Christ loved us. As he loved that woman.  Like how we love our children.
