The Francis family mantra. “Make wise choices”! It’s what we would say to our daughters every time they walked out the front door. It became so expected by them to hear it that they began saying it before we could. “I know Mom…..Make wise choices” Over time the phrase was shortened to the initials MWC.
Our daughters are now grown. Ashlee graduates from college in 2 weeks, and Kaylee from high school in 6 weeks. They have, with God’s grace, and much prayer, made many wise choices. So now that the most focused part of raising my daughters is done, what now? I start each day in prayer, asking God what it is HE wants me to do as I go about my day. Will HIS answer be – “Make wise choices”?
20 Listen to advice and accept instruction,
and in the end you will be wise.
21 Many are the plans in a man’s heart,
but it is the LORD’s purpose that prevails.
