Lessons from Childcare

I find it interesting that I work so much with children and love it, since I'm terrified of being a parent one day and raising them. Having the responsibility of guiding not only a child's education, life skills, and behavior but also their soul is such a weighty, dread-inducing responsibility. Knowing how to bring up a child biblically - to know and fear the Lord and follow Him all their lives - to guide and discipline in a way that points their hearts to God - what a heavy burden and a high calling. While I sense that to an extent working in childcare (though many times I'm just trying to maintain control over the chaos!), having children only a few hours at a time - I'm just like a sub off the bench who comes in the game for a few minutes to relieve the starters - I don't have that responsibility constantly surrounding me. Sometimes I sit and think about what it would be like to have that responsibility full-time. There was something that came to mind that …

Heaven Song

I've been listening to a song called "Heaven Song" recently. It's become one of my favorites. Part of the chorus says, "I can't wait to join the angels and sing my Heaven song." I got to thinking about that...
I know angels have particular praises they sing - you can find it all throughout Scripture. And there's particular praises that all the saints gone before us resound collectively in Heaven. But I wonder if we each individually will have a personal anthem of praise - a Heaven song - based on how God has worked and what He has done for each of us personally? We'll see God's had in our lives - every aspect - so clearly there. It's such a neat thought to me. I wonder what Daniel's Heaven song sounds like? I wonder what my own Heaven song will be. It's kind of cool to think about.
You wrote a letter and You signed your name
I read every word of it page by page
You said that You'd be coming, coming for me soon
Oh my God …

The Start

Here it is. My first post on my own blog. Feels kind of weird. I've been thinking about getting a blog for awhile now but just recently decided to take the plunge. Here's some of the things I've been mulling over posting about -
*Thoughts on Scriptures I've read
*Favorite songs
*Topics I have a passion for or take an interest in
*Random fun things that catch my eye
*Musings over life's lessons
That's why I said this is for "wandering ponderings" in my sidebar... I imagine this will be full of random thoughts until I can sort out exactly where I want to focus most. So here goes another crazy adventure in my life! :)
