Here in Houston, School starts back up tomorrow, August 22. I know I should be running around my house in circles gathering everything up that my boys will need, yet I find myself sitting here looking through pictures reminiscing of when my boys were just babies. How does time fly by so quickly? How is it that Alex is already going into 5th grade and Naelen-Joel is going into 1st? It just seems like they shouldn’t be this grown already. I told my husband I’ve felt like i’ve been on the verge of tears all day long. HA!
I have been going through tons of questions in my mind for days on end now. Asking myself things like ” Are they ready?, Have I done everything possible on my end? Have I taught them to be kind and loving to everyone they come in contact with? Have I taught them what it’s like to always be the light, to be leaders and not followers?” Oh they just keep racing through. It’s so easy as a mom to get caught up in worry and fear. We live in such a crazy world and all I want to do is protect my sweet babies (not so much babies any more). So right now, i’m putting them in God’s hand. I know he’ll keep them and guide them through another school year.
I pray that God will protect each and every child starting school tomorrow. I pray that he will give them a passion to learn. That they will walk in wisdom and always stand for what is right. I pray they each child will walk in favor with their teachers and friends. I pray that every student including my own, will speak life over each other and be rooted in God’s love. I pray complete peace over the entire school year. And that each child will grow and enjoy this year the most!
Parents, my pastor said somethings today that I’m taking to heart, “Greatest gifts to give you children are Words of Affirmation”. Tell them they are doing great, that they are going to do great things and that you are proud of them! It will change their direction! As long as i’m alive I will continually to speak blessings and life over my children.
Have a great night everyone!
