Correction- I Love You

Hey Everybody! Sorry I haven't posted in a while, I was kind of busy. That's highschool for you!

So this post I just wanted to speak out about parents.

I love my parents :D

My parents have to put up with me a lot! And I'm so glad they do. My Parents are such great examples to me and they lead me and my siblings in the ways of Christ. They truly care about my soul, and I love them very much.

Genesis 18:19
19 For I have chosen him, so that he will direct his children and his household after him to keep the way of the LORD by doing what is right and just, so that the LORD will bring about for Abraham what he has promised him.

First I think we should think about how blessed we are to have such great parents. Some kids parents don't even know God, some parents are abusive to their children. We are so blessed to live in homes where our parents care about us and our souls. Also, let's keep these abused kids in our thoughts and prayers.

Parent-Teen relationships are in a lot of trouble right now. Rebellion against parents is so common, that some teens don't learn what they should from their parents because they are so concerned about what they want to do. Here's an imaginary scene to illustrate:

Teen:"Josh is having a party on Friday night from 9pm-2am can I go?"
Parent:"Will there be parents there?"
Teen: "Well...no but Uh..."
Parent:"Well I don't think you should be at a party that late without parents."
Teen: "You don't trust me!"
Parent:"No, that's not it. I just don't want..."
Teen:" You don't care about what I want!"
Parent"Correction- I Love You. I don't want to get into any trouble with those kids or their parents, or God."
Teen: " Well FINE!"

Isn't that awful??? Truth is, we all do it at times, though maybe not so serious. Our parents really care about us, and when they say 'no' to something they have a good reason for it.

This past week my parents have been saying no to things because I haven't finished homework. And inside (and outside sometimes :S) I'm going: NOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm sure you know that feeling. Yesterday, Mom told me that I still had more school to do so I should go on the blog so I said, "Yes Mom." Then I went up in my room and screamed in my pillow. Then I looked at my bookshelf where my Bible was sitting and thought, 'No Kylie, Mom is right. Go finish, get on the blog when you're absolutley done. Get your priorities straight.' After that I walked downstairs and sat down quietly at the kitchen table and did more homework. My mom walked up to me and told me that she loved me. She went to the grocery store and bought me a chocolate bar. A CHOCOLATE BAR! It's like...HELLO...I didn't deserve that.

God placed our parents on this earth to guide us in light and to love us. And they are doing such an awesome job! Cyber Scream for the parents: WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!

Next time you see your parents, give them a hug!!!!!

In God's Grace,

~Kylie

Aren't parents awesome?? The stupid thing is that, even though they obviously have WAY more experience and are far wiser than we are, we get all uppity and "I know more than you do" to them. Boy, are we stupid, or what? THAT is just further proof that we need parents... can you imagine how awful it would be if we were left to ourselves? I have 4 words for you: "Lord of the Flies."
I'd ask for some chocolate, but being the sweet-aholic you are, you've probably eaten it all. :-) jk. Hope you enjoyed it!

We are pretty stupid. If we were left without parents...I can't imagine it. It'd be a sad sad world :(

Oh and everybody be careful on your computer! There's a big virus going around!

thanks for this kylie!
i has the same thought the other day. during the annie moses concert when she sang, "when daddy says im beautiful, a happiness fills me up inside" i was thinking of how much we take our parent's love for granted! they love us so much! thats why they direct us against the things we want that could be bad for us. we think they dont undertand - but really, they know more whats best for us!
thank you, God for parents!!!
