Oh Be Careful Little........

Oh, be careful little eyes what you see.
Oh, be careful little ears what you hear.
Oh, be careful little tongue what you say.
Oh, be careful little hands what you do.
Oh, be careful little feet where you go.

I have sung this little children's song most of my life, but, especially after having grandchildren, I realize even more how important it is to BE CAREFUL.

Our grandson is forever saying.....but Mimi says.....but Grandaddy does...etc.  They are WATCHING EVERY MOVE, WORD and ACTION we do and want to be just like us.

Not just our grandchildren....but other children of the church are watching.
The adults are watching.
The neighbors are watching.
The co-workers are watching.

It is so very important to always live our lives in a way that we could be proud if our grandchildren want to be just like us.  (Or anyone else as that goes..........)

Regardless of what you think..................SOMEONE, somewhere is WATCHING YOU.
You are their ONLY Bible.  They are watching your life.  They are watching how you handle stress,  They are watching how you deal with pain.  THEY ARE WATCHING YOU.

As adults..........especially as Pastors wives........we need to really listen and heed to this song.

I love the last verse........

O be careful little heart whom you trust
O be careful little heart whom you trust
For the Father up above
He's looking down in love
So, be careful little heart whom you trust.
