Do you have bits and pieces of ideas, quotes, and thoughts scribbled on scraps of paper like I do? I'm pretty sure I can't be the only one, right?
Sorting through some of those paper scraps this morning, I found a few notes I had scribbled down concerning my word for 2020, diligence. This quote from Sally Clarkson needs to be shared before I toss that particular scrap:
"Daily life is where diligence is trained and learned. As our children watch our faithfulness and experience our love, they develop a heart to be diligent. Giving them work to complete develops moral strength. Helping children persevere in difficult relationships teaches them to be faithful in adult relationships." ~ Sally Clarkson
Lots to chew on here. We need to be diligent in our relationship with God and our relationships with others as well as in those all-important tasks of daily life. Even though diligence was my word for last year, it's something I'm still working on daily. Glad I didn't throw that scrap of paper away before I read it!
