When I was a little boy, growing up, I would get into bed at night, very carefully, so I wouldn't mess the covers.
"Instead of changing people, accept them for who they are"
They do not need to be fixed, they do not need to be straightened out, they need to be accepted. approved, loved and encouraged.
I would sleep perfectly still, I wouldn't move, I wouldn't roll-over, when I woke up the next day, I would get out of bed as carefully as can be, so I would not have to make the bed up.
Our daughter Alexandria, is 13 years old, and she is just like me. As perfect as can be.
Our son, Jonathan is 17 years old, and he is just like Victoria. Perfect in a different way.
Our daughter picks out her clothes, the night before she goes to school, the next day. She is very prepared.
We will be going on a trip, and she has already picked her clothes out. She know what she is going to take.
God puts people in our lives, that are different than we are. Different strengths, different talents, different goals.
Too often, we look at them and say, hey! you're not like me. Let me fix you. Let me get you straightened out.
Just because they are not like you, does not mean they are less than you.
