The best thing that my parents did for me is they taught me through the way they lived their lives. My parents showed me how to trust God in the good times as well as the bad. They lived life authentically. Everything was not always perfect but they had God as the foundation in their marraige and were always committed to each other. I appereciate that they did not always agree on everything, they showed me how to "fight fair" and selflessly compromise. My parents showed me through their actions how to serve other in need. If a friend, family member, neighbor, or even perfect strangers needed a helping hand, a meal, a listening ear, or even a place to stay; my parents stepped up and helped meet the need. They taught me that the world does not revolve around me and that the bigger picture is so much more than what I can even imagine They taught me that God is working his good and perfect plan even though I may not understand it all the time. Most importantly they taught me that God loves me and that through His son, Jesus, I can be saved by grace.
