Thoughts for the Soul






Over the weekend I have had to deal with a lot of different emotions,major decisions and just life in general. I decided I needed a break from the books family and everything this "Superwoman" needed to de stress or she would no good for herself let alone anyone else. As I was out relaxing by the lake my phone chimed. A message was awaiting my attention. I initially thought no, no one is going to take this few moments of my time(I needed and deserved it). However, my curiosity got the best of me. It was a dear friend...as I read his email I became more and more engaged.












He began by telling me about a new project he was working on. He continued to tell me his reason for the email. "I was in my car on my way to set when we stopped at a red light. I looked up from my script and saw a father walking across the street holding his son's hand." The son was so happy "giddy"with joy as he and his dad ran in the park.As I continued to read tears filled my eyes. As though I could feel my friends emotional state. See as a child he never experienced this unconditional joy,never knew what it felt like to be adored as a child.












He said he often wonder if his dad knew then what he knows now,would he have treated him any different. If he had known the little boy that depended on him for food and shelter would grow up to become the man he depends on for these same necessities.....












There is an old song, Mary,Did You Know? my children still sing it today. The lyrics go on to ask," Mary, did you know your baby boy would come to save the world.....












Wow! you see not only did this ponder on my friends mind but it ministered to me...as he closed he left me with several questions or should I say thoughts. Who is in your house? Do you know whom you are raising?












So as I kiss my children goodnight I think of what my friend said and pray that God is pleased!!!
