We are reading through the Word as a family--it has taken us three years to get to the book of Joel. One chapter a day....However, what a blessing it has been to see God's love unfold. This verse from Hosea 11 ministered to me,

"When Israel was a child, I loved him, and out of Egypt I called them, so they went from them; they sacrificed to the Baals, and burned incense to carved images. I taught Ephraim to walk taking them by their arms; but they did not know that I healed them. I drew them with gentle cords, with bands of love; and I was to them as those who take the yoke from their neck. I stooped and fed them." 1-4

I pray that I can do the same for my children.
