"Lord Have Mercy on Me a Sinner!"

« on: August 10, 2012, 07:50:28 AM »

Well, it’s that time of year again: sending our children off to their first day of the new school season. This is always an emotional time for me- seeing the excitement, trepidation, expectations and hopes on my children’s faces as they venture out into this complicated world of ours. As a parent, you can only pray and trust that you have equipped your children with the moral and spiritual foundation necessary to negotiate the trials, temptations, and challenges they will face. Please say a prayer for Noah, Zion, and Adayah today. And say a prayer for all children everywhere who are beginning their school year today. May God bless and strengthen the youths of the world.

Do not want things to turn out as they seem best to you, but as God pleases. Then you will be free from confusion, and thankful in prayer.
