Sometimes I wonder how their paths will turn out or which direction they will go. Crooked more than straight? Curved, bent wildly or narrow and steep?
I am awed at the very fact that I get to watch it, but nervous about it too. I have two sons mind you. Bless their hearts for they just might invite trouble without meaning to.
Then, I remember who gave them to me. He has their future in His hands. How my prayers for my children do make a difference.
I think about how the Lord took care of me all of my life thus far and how much I've changed.
I gaze down my path and see where I chose Him, see the clues of His love, grace and forgiveness.
I trust God with my children completely. I am delighted to be blessed with His children (my sons) and that He trusted me to influence their lives toward Him. I am entrusted to help teach them how to be and love them.
