Children's First Day of School
« 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.
"I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die [...] These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world." -The Lord Jesus Christ

Lord have mercy on brother Gebre and his children and all all Orthodox children everywhere and all children everywhere.  :)
Psalm 37:23 The Lord guides a man safely in the way he should go.

Prov. 3: 5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your paths.

Beautiful children Gebre! I love your daughter's bright smile! May God guide and protect your children through their journey!
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.
