Just over here pondering my boy’s childhoods knowing that military life can be bitter sweet for so many kids.
Like all military and missionary kids, mine will grow up having a hard time with the question,
“Where are you from?”
But is that the strongest identity marker anyway?
Maybe a better question (or follow up question) we can start asking is,
“What is something you remember about your childhood?”
Praying they grow up with a strong since of identity not because they’re from (fill in the blank), but because they know,
- Who made made them.
- Who loves them.
