All Are Precious In His Sight

Andrew Jonathan and Deborah Jolene

I took these photos of our children yesterday, just before we went to church, and I wanted to share them with you.

I know every mother feels the same way that I do...that we have been blessed with such precious children. Children are just precious, aren't they? So if you are a mother, yes, I agree with you...your children are precious. They are a treasure that the Lord has placed in our home, and I am thankful for the privilege that the Lord has given us to raise children for Him.

How tender and loving children's hearts are!!! What a big responsibility we have been given to guide and train and mold these hearts for our Lord's service, for His honor and glory.

Below are the lyrics of a song I wrote when I was 3 months pregnant with our Andrew Jonathan....June, 2003


Lo, children are an heritage of the Lord,
And the fruit of the womb is His reward
These precious words are written in God's Word
But with this special privilege comes also a command
To train up a child in the way that he should go.

Train up a child in the way that he should go
Train up a child in the way that he should go
And when he is old, he will not depart from it
So train up your child in the way that he should go.

Dear Lord, I fall short of Your perfection,
I fail you in something every day
How can I lead my child in all Your ways?
So I ask You for Your wisdom, I ask for understanding
To train up my child in the way that he should go.

The Scripture will be our light to guide his feet into Your arms
Our prayers will be our weapon against all harm
So take our child, Heavenly Father, Teach his Dad and me
To train up our child in the way that he should go.

Have a wonderful day!

With love from Chiapas,

Mrs. Anna López
