First Day of School
I'm sitting here in a quiet house wondering how my kids are doing at their new schools. It has been really hard for me to send them off to do something so difficult. I can accept that suffering produces perseverance and character for myself, but it's harder to accept that principle in my children's lives. Although I believe that this move will ultimately work for their good and they will be blessed, today is going to be hard... and maybe tomorrow will be too. Pray that Will would find someone to play foursquare with. Pray that Audra will find someone to make miniature food with (her latest hobby). Pray that Jacob will find someone to text who doesn't live in Oklahoma!
Speaking of prayer, we had a great experience at the mall yesterday. There is a store called C28. It sells a brand called "Not of this World". Jacob and Richard were in there buying something and the salesclerk asked if she could pray for them. She came out from behind the counter and prayed for our house to sell, for us to find a house, and for Jacob to find friends at school. Wow! That's real Service! Thank you Amanda. Thank you Lord.
