Last weekend was a biggie for my  oldest son, he made his Confirmation.  Confirmation is one of the seven sacraments in the Catholic Church; Baptism, Holy Communion, Confession, Confirmation, Marriage, Holy Orders and Anointing of the sick.  He confirmed that he accepts God and his son Jesus as his saviour and is enriched with the Holy Spirit and  is a true witness of Christ.   He was really excited about the day and he was beaming in Church.  I hope he always holds this day special in his heart and I pray that he will always turn to Jesus to guide him through both good times and bad times in life.  I’ve always turned to Jesus in times of joy, hope, sorrow and despair. Prayer doesn’t always bring desired results, however, God always leads me in the right direction.  Showing your children spirituality can be difficult as you want them to discover things on their own, not pound your beliefs in their heads.  It’s a delicate balance of guidance and discipline, but mostly it’s a matter of teaching children through example.  Next year my son is in his first year of high school, another biggie and I can’t quite believe how fast the time is going.  It seems like yesterday my boys were two little tots with the only thing on their minds being Thomas the Train and Mega Bloks.  It’s all too fast for me and I find myself taking deep breaths to take it all in before the time is gone!
