The Bible tells us to make it our ambition to lead a quiet life and mind our own business. I try to, I really try. But Genesis is out unsupervised on a busy street for more time than I am comfortable with. Her mother is overwhelmed, I am sure, by two younger children. However, leaving a five year old out unsupervised for 45 minutes to an hour scares me to death. I am praying to figure out what Jesus wants me to do in addition to loving this child for Him.
So Genesis and I had a talk as we watched the butterflies flit around the cottage garden. That's all I could think to do yesterday.
Update: I talked to my neighbors on the other side, wonderful Christians with kids the same age. We decided that God must have put this young family in our midst for a reason. We agreed to be praying and help out whenever we could.. They invited the new family to a spaghetti dinner and dessert auction at church two blocks away and the new family was glad to go.
