Ryan’s Miracle Watch 8/17/17

“Don’t become preoccupied with your child’s academic ability, but instead teach them to sit with those sitting alone. Teach them to be kind. Teach them to offer help. Teach them to be a friend to the lonely. Teach them to encourage others. Teach them to think about other people. Teach them to share. Teach them to look for the good. This is how they will change the world.”

Read this quote on FB the other day, and it reminds me so much of how Ryan is. The thing about Ryan is he didn’t need to be taught any of these things. It was part of his DNA; his nature…especially the parts about being a friend to the lonely and sitting with those sitting alone…

Truth be told, Ryan’s been teaching me these things…

Mark 12:30-31   Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength. The second is this: Love your neighbor as yourself. There is no commandment greater than these.
