Tonight was the piano recital at Mrs. Slocum's house. AJ has been taking lessons from her since he was 5 years old. I started him when he showed an interest. When I was searching for teachers, the teacher I had in mind would not start him until age 7. I felt led to pursue a teacher that would start him at age 5 because I worried he would lose interest. It was just God's direction leading me to Mrs. Slocum. She is a beautiful Christian woman who plays the piano at her church for the worship service. She is so patient with the kids and they love her and so do I.
Emily, on the other hand, started at age 7 and it was way too early for her. She just started back up in September of this year at age 9. I know these two children have a calling on their lives and I pray everyday that God will use them for His Glory--actually I want Him to use ALL of them ; ) Whatever the case, my prayer is they have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and He guide and protect them all the days of their lives. I am so proud of them and so thankful and flattered that God would give us the 4 of them to raise, because the way we see it- they are His children we have been blessed with being their parents.
