18:1-15, 21:1-6 God keeps His promise and gives Abraham and Sarah a son after they had waited a long time.
SAY THIS: Who keeps His promises? God keeps His promises.
Cuddle up wth your child this month and pray, "Dear God, thank You for giving [child's name] to me. I love being his/her Mommy/Daddy. But as much as I love him/her, I know you love him/her even more! Your love for us is SO big! I pray we never forget it! You are the best, God, and we love You very much. In Jesus' name, amen."
"Trust the Lord with all your heart." Proverbs 3:5, NCV
BASIC TRUTH: God loves me.

THE WORDS THAT STICK By Sarah Anderson
We lived for a few solid years in our family not having to really watch our words. We could have conversations about dessert, fun places to go, and toys. And our toddlers would be none the wiser. But this past year, we turned a corner.
We’ve started spelling.
Our years of open conversation and reckless dialogue are done. These days, words are starting to stick. Phrases hang around. Nothing is said “in passing” anymore. Because my four-year old’s mind is like a steel trap. What’s said is almost always remembered.
“I need a few minutes of quiet.” “What in the world is going on here?” “This place is a mess.” It’s kind of entertaining stuff coming from the mouth of four-year-old, unless you're that four-year-old’s mother. Then it’s just convicting.
