Thank you, JESUS because where others see nothing, you allow us to learn a valuable lesson...
Ever since my Honey Bunny (husband) and I gave birth to our 4 Tokens of LOVE(sons), we've always tried to instill in them: love, respect, and a positive mind set to others and themselves. By doing this we also shared with them that GOD loves obedient children and he BLESSES them like this:
"HONOR YOUR FATHER AND YOUR MOTHER, THAT YOUR DAYS MAY BE LONG IN THE LAND THAT THE LORD YOUR GOD IS GIVING YOU".
The lesson stuck like glue because yesterday, I was moved to tell our oldest son(Carlos Jr.) to get ready; because I was going to give him a make over, the shaving of the Mustache. Low and behold, Carlos Jr. didn't: complain, argue, or ask why. He just allowed me(Mom) to have my way.
A few moments later the LORD told me that through obedience, doors and windows of BLESSINGS are opened. I was: overwhelmed, honored, and BLESSED by our oldest Diamond's Spirit of OBEDIENCE.
Before our Baby went to bed he let his Dad and I know that shaving his mustache was always in the back of his mind; however he wasn't sure about our reactions. GOD works in Mysterious ways, doesn't he???
