I've recently been realizing the challenge of raising Levi and instilling in him what God calls me to as his mother. I want so much for him. I think mostly of his character and the values he will possess. I pray he always clings to Christ and does not back down when he's challenged because of his beliefs. I want him to realize what is important in life and how to spend his time and I pray, pray, pray he IGNORES what today's media depicts as acceptable. A lot of these thoughts of mine have been building in anticipation of Christmas. As new parents, it is tempting to dive into all the hoop-la of Christmas, but I want to be very careful as to how Matt and I begin our traditions with Levi. I don't want him to ever question the true meaning of Christmas. Most of these thoughts are the result of a recent staff meeting at the school where I work. I won't even get started on what that's all about....that is another blog in itself...stay tuned!
Here's some recent pics of Levi Buttonfly. Enjoy and have a Happy THANKSgiving!
