Encouraging our Children in new interests!
On Memorial Day our family walked up the smaller mountain we have here in Wisconsin. :) It was a great family walk and fun picnic at the top of a beautiful view:
As we started the hike back down we turned our walk to a run. After we got half way down my daughter requested to run with us. She impressed both my husband and myself. She ran and ran and her coordination was great!! :) I was so thrilled! She was running in sandals and a dress so I knew a shopping trip was in store for us to find running shoes and outfit for her!
3 hours of searching for the right shoes this is what we found:
After we got home she immediately put it on. We waited and waited for daddy to arrive home. I absolutely enjoyed my husbands enthusiasm when he saw his daughter. He was so encouraging and full of compliments. :) It melted my heart.... I love him so much, and I adore watching him being a daddy. :)
Soon after the hubby and I had to change because Selah was anxiously waiting to go for a run in her new shoes. :) So here is the SHOCKING part we ran... 1.21 miles! :) Her first run in her new shoes and she impressed us so so much!!! :) :)
I am looking forward to a running partner! :) :) In fact I signed her up for a half mile run in 2 weeks and I will be running a 5K. :)
It is a joy to watch my children in new talents. Running may not seem like much to many but to me I sit back and think if this is a talent that God is blessing my daughter with then how can she use it to Glorify God? How can I help her in this talent?
A lot for me to reflect on. I love it and I LOVE GOD!
