All in the Family

I am back from my trip to my hometown, but I have yet to unpack. I was very tired on Sunday after arriving home. Monday, the boys were finishing up projects and studying for tests. Things were going fairly well until I got an email from the principal. The email informed me of something my youngest son has been doing at the school. Something that broke my heart. The matter caused me grief not only with my son, but with my husband. I have been the one to handle the matter with the principal and thankfully he has been kind.

Because this has happened, I am questioning my choices in life, my marriage, my abilities as a mother. But I know what the Lord wants me to do. He wants me to reach out to Him, not rely on my own strength. He put me here in this little family for just such a time as this. Colossians 3:23-24 says, "Whatever you do, do your work heartily, as for the Lord rather than for men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance. It is the Lord Christ whom you serve."

Please, if you feel lead, could pray for our family. Thank you!

I will be praying. It is comforting to not be alone in such trials. The Lord's love is unfailing and He is for us.

I will be praying, yes. <><

May the Lord's arms secure themselves around your heart at this time, giving you a measure of peace, dear one.
