Oh, I get it now

So, last night, I instructed one of our children to do something.

And this dear, beautiful child - instead of doing it - looked up at me with big eyes and said, "I looooove you, Mommy."

And, slightly annoyed, I heard myself say, "If you love me, obey me."

And then, listening to what I had just said, it hit me like a ton of bricks: Wow, I think now I finally understand that passage in John.

Which one? This one:
If you love Me, you will keep My commandments.

Oh. That's what that means. Right.

Parenthood: catechesis for the rest of us. 

Peace of Christ to you,

"Parenthood: catechesis for the rest of us"... sounds like a book title to me, Jess! Let's ask Cyndi what she thinks. Mom
