Each person has their own challenges in life.

Myers: Don’t let Satan’s evils deceive your eyes and ears

The other day Chloe was trying to snap her fingers. She'd seen me do it before, and she was doing a very good job of mimicking my actions.

Myers: Everything we have is just on loan

Chloe's learned a four-letter word. I don't know where or from whom she learned it, but oh, how I wish I could find out.

Myers: Mix and match doesn't work with God

Chloe and Cole are special. Obviously I think they are, or I wouldn't bore you with stories about them week after week. But they're special for another reason: they're hybrids. Half of one thing, half of another, all of neither.

Sin separates like a locked door between you and God

Cole doesn't like open doors. Whenever he finds one at the house he rushes to close it, regardless of which side of it he's on. That led to a little trouble for him (and me) the other day.

A couple of days ago, I fixed Chloe and Cole lunch. They ate it all, which was a good bit of food.

Myers: God will never comparison shop

Shortly after Cole was born, I was holding him and watching Chloe play. I turned to Amy and said, "I know this is awful to say, but I wish he'd hurry up and grow up a little, so we can do more things with him like we do with Chloe."

Myers: To be first, line up last

Chloe is going through this stage where she wants to be first. When I take her and Cole to school, she wants to go inside before he does. When we're about to eat supper, she wants her plate before anyone else gets theirs. When she and Cole are taking medicine, she insists I give Cole his after she gets hers.

Myers: With love, God will take what we are willing to give

I sometimes wonder if I love God enough.

Your father’s hand gives you safety, balance

Chloe is fascinated by the steep hill we have in our backyard. She likes nothing more than to walk down it, then back up it, repeating the process several times over. I have to admit it helps in getting her tired out before bedtime, and I often use that to my advantage.

Myers: Pull of forbidden fruit still haunts us to this day

There's nothing so tempting as forbidden fruit. Or forbidden toys.

Chloe knows beauty when she sees it.

Myers: When sorry seems to be the hardest word

Twin tear tracks spilled down Chloe's reddened face. "I'm sorry!" she cried.

Myers: Relationships provide true riches

When it comes to finances, I am by nature a saver. Amy is, by nature, a spender.

Myers: Hold your father's hand to navigate world's dangers

If your garage is anything like ours, it's not exactly a kid-friendly place. Especially in the dark.
