So, the kids return to school tomorrow. Public school for the second year. I was not sure I wanted to do that again. It is easier than planning the year myself and taking complete responsibility for their education. I am no longer so brave. However, in some ways, I have to trust God more than I did when we home-schooled. I have to pray more not knowing what they face or who they are with or what they are teaching them. I hope it brings me closer to God. Of course, as a Christian, I hope all circumstances bring me closer to God. As I go to bed tonight, it is with prayers for their well-being. I want them to be okay, happy, loved, and confident, but most of all, I want them to live their lives to let others see who God is. I want for them to pass on their faith to others. That is my deepest hope. I want others to see a difference in my children. I can only pray that happens. For my kids: "The LORD bless you and keep you; the LORD make his face shine upon you and be gracious to you; the LORD turn his face toward you and give you peace."
