Our greatest need and random pictures

I watched the whole thing. Henry (mad) pushed his toy lawn mover across the floor straight into Catherine's head. Screaming, tears, and eventually a two year old apology followed.
In the scheme of things (or even our day), it really wasn't a big deal. But, I saw the anger in my son's eyes and his desire to hurt something, someone. And there it simply was... sin. I was overwhelmed with the realization that Henry was just like me and you. He needs Jesus. As a parent, I have the responsibility to train him how to have self-control and not act out those raw feelings, but the Holy Spirit (I pray) will more importantly change his heart. I love this kid and need wisdom in how to raise him to love the Lord (and his sister)!
