Day 7 – I Will Seek to Honor
While this resolution might seem to piggy-back on yesterday’s, I cannot avoid the themes I see stretching across the landscape of each day. Today is Veterans’ Day, a day on which we honor those who have served in the military. I spent my morning with my mother, who served her time in the U.S. Army, hoping to honor her not only as a veteran, but as a mother and a grandmother as she spent time with my kids.
I want to honor my husband as he tells me stories about his day and as he struggles with the difficulties and injustices that sometimes accompany college classes.
I want to honor my children by training them up in the way they should go, whether it means telling them stories or calming their fears or sending them to time-out.
I want to honor my Creator my making sure that every word, action, and thought is worshipful.
Honor does not always require a parade or a salute, but instead it demands that the little things of our lives have an intent to lift up and to respect. That is my goal for today.
