"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.

Lord, have mercy! I will find myself in the same position soon, too.

On hiatus from posting. Forgive me if my posts have lacked humility or tact. Note that some of my older posts -especially those prior to late 2012- may not reflect my current views. In the meantime, please pray for my sinful self as I am in a critical and unsure juncture in my life. Thank you.

Yes, yes, youth is wasted on the young. And so is accumulated experience wasted on the old, the positives of modernism wasted on moderns, the beauty of Christianity wasted on Christians, the utility of scholarship wasted on scholars, and on and on.

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.
