Children are blessings from the Lord and early on we must teach them the Word and its importance in daily living. As a family we had daily Kids Devotionals, Veggie Tales, the Nest animated bible stories and all kinds of prayers and stories we said and read together when my children were young. When our kids grow older they are exposed to the world and we must support them through prayer and many times our silence (my biggest challenge!) .... and allowing them to embark on their own journey... and sometimes they will make detours or make the wrong choices. Many times they will make us proud. 💕👍🏻🏅🎖Paolo, Gab and Kiana were exposed to our fishbowl environment (concerts, movie shoots, TV shows, cover pictorials for magazines, interviews etc) and they had a very difficult childhood. Gary and I would be on tour constantly and we couldn't always bring them. Kiana told my manager once "Mama doesn't love me because she left me." But her papa is a diabetic and I had to be with him so the heart-tugging departures were really tough to experience. My heart was always a bundle of emotions. 😱😩🤔😳😪😭🤗🤡😋😇🤣😂😀😭💔❤ Today I see them trying to find their own spaces despite the towering personality and career of their Papa. My prayer today is that I will continue to pray for them daily and that God's destiny for each of them will be fulfilled. That they make the right choices and that the Word will shield them from the pain that the world will continue to inflict on them. My heart is constantly seeking for God's Will to be fulfilled in my own life, my husband's and my children's lives and in all the lives of our clans, our Genesis team and those who have decided to follow my account. God bless you all today with wisdom, good health, abundant provision, perseverance, faith, hope and a deeper and more fruitful walk with Him. #children #parenting #garyalenciano #paolovalenciano 🙏🏻❤☀️🌈#gabvalenciano #kianavalenciano #angelivalenciano #thevalencianos #barangaypangilinan
