When our three children were toddlers, my wife enjoyed taking them for walks down our country road. Karen loved to bundle them up, put on their rubber boots and lead them outside to find the best mud puddles to stomp in. During these walks, she would point out to our children God’s creation and use these times as teachable moments to instill God’s truth. She would tell them how much God loves them and how awesome He is. Deuteronomy 6:6-7 says to teach God’s Word to your children. “These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.”
Many years have passed and now we are grandparents (Papa and AMA)!!! We have ten of the most adorable grandchildren on this earth. Karen and I take them for walks down the same country road and look for the same opportunities to share God’s love and creation with them. Just as we walk with our grandchildren in the rain, our Lord walks with us during the storms in our lives. During difficult times God wants us to seek Him, and through the trials and tribulations, we have opportunities to learn to trust Him more.
