Our children are precious. This email I received this week was something I just had to share (with Brenda’s permission) about the blessing I give my children and continue to give. In addition, you can download a free copy to bless your children or grandchildren… even from afar.
Hi, Kevin. Hope this finds you and your family well.
I want to share a sweet story that goes all the way back to the first time I attended the On Purpose training session in Orlando. You talked to us about the blessing you say over your children, and gave me a copy of it. I put it to memory and began saying it to my children often. Not every day, but several times per week. I am always amazed at how they soften and smile when I begin saying it—even my 13-year-old who is VERY 13 right now! A couple of weeks ago I had a particularly challenging day, and to make matters worse I wasn’t feel well. I decided to go to bed early, and went in my room to lie down. A few minutes later, Megan, my 9-year-old, came in and got in bed with me. She reached over, placed her hand on my head and said “God bless Mommy. Give her a mind to know, eyes to see you….” and said the full blessing over me. It was a very sweet moment. I pray she’ll be saying it for many years, and passing it on to her children and grandchildren. Thanks for the blessing! I thought you’d like to hear the story.
You can well imagine how that email made my day.
