We began building a few new guardrails in our home today, and rebuilding some that have fallen into disrepair.
Guardrails = A system to keep vehicles from straying into dangerous or off limits areas
(from a sermon series at church)
I like the visual that definition provides.
We’ve allowed some of the “guardrails” in our home to fall into disrepair, resulting in too much time being wasted following worthless, and potentially harmful, pursuits. Today those guardrails were rebuilt governing the amount of time our boys spend online and redirecting them back onto the highway toward success.
We all need guardrails, don’t we? I sure do! I am so thankful to be able to open my Bible and see the loving way that God has provided guardrails for us as we follow Him.
Guardrails aren’t restrictive. They’re only installed along the dangerous bits of roadway. They don’t obstruct our view, but they clearly mark the place where the edge of the pavement ends and the cliff begins. As the pastor said Sunday, we really don’t appreciate those guardrails until we need them.
Some touch up painting was taken care of today, too! So thankful for a husband who works hard on his day off!
