celebrate the Lord in them

(embracing the camera here)

in this super book (that i finished reading a few weeks ago) CJ talks about teaching our children what true greatness is (i blogged more about that here). he challenges us, "if you're a parent, don't celebrate anything more than you celebrate godly character in your children."
i want to be better at going all out & celebrating the grace of God in their lives that they are reflecting His character. more than learning the alphabet, eating their vegetables, running fast, riding a bike... i want to throw a party when their sweet little lives are looking more & more like their Savior! & remind them that it is ONLY by His grace anyway that they are able to do ANY good.
