How to miss a childhood.

I came across this article from a friend that use to attend our church, she has since moved and is a pastors wife. How To Miss A Childhood This was very convicting since I find myself chatting on the phone when I am driving.

Some won't understand the article or the importance of spending time with kids. I know in our homeschool there are certain times that I do not answer the phones. And I will have people tell me that they called while driving by and saw my car was at the house, they just don't get that my child is more important than chatting on the phone, they are more than welcome to leave a message and I will call back after school. It's really sad that people can't see that educating my child is of greater necessity than chatting about the weather.

I've not read anything on that blog besides the "How To Miss A Childhood" article, so I don't know where the author comes from regarding her biblical views, but for me and my house this Bible verse comes to mind.

Matthew 12:36-37 " But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment. For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned."

How did that blog post touch you?
