As Our Children Grow

As our children grow more and more independent, they spend less and less time with us. Although we cannot accompany them through all the ups and downs of life, God can. He can be where we cannot be. He can guide when we aren't able to guide. He can protect when we are not present. Without prayer, we may feel fear, insecurity, and doubt as our children move out from under our wings. With prayer, we can feel hope, security, and trust in our partnership with the very One who created our children. - Jill Savage, Professionalizing Motherhood
