Sunday, November 16, 2008 is hard!!!!...

The sermon at church tonight was the first of two on parenting. It is amazing to me how God provides what we need. I have had a very difficult time parenting one of my children lately. Tears have been spilled from my eyes and prayers for wisdom offered up. God provided me support and guidance with a Sunday evening sermon.
I will add the insights as soon as I have them in a coherent form:)
~From God with Love ~
~Author Unknown~

Children are a blessing sent from God above. For us to care and nurture and most of all to love. God calls us to be parents and gives us all the tools. And when we feel like giving up, our strength He will renew. Children are a gift from God that He so freely lends. To make it through the childhood years, on Him we must depend. He must have a presence, you see it must take three. The parents, child and Christ at the center to be a family. From childhood days to a child full grown. Their joys and hurts are a parent's own. Times of joy and laughter and those times of tears. The times spent raising a child are surely the best of years. There comes that time in life when a child will leave the nest. We must send them off with love and a prayer and leave to God the rest. We've have shared the Word of God, we've taught them right from wrong. Now it's time to let them go and let them write their song. The faith instilled, the examples lived, and the lessons taught. All gifts that we've given our child, which will never be forgotten. There are many paths a child can take, right or wrong will remain unknown. But rest assured that in the end, they all lead back to home.

more to come....
