Teach me Your paths
Lead me in Your truth and teach me
for You are the God of my salvation
for You i wait all the day
i just dropped my son off at the train station… the TRAIN STATION! with only his friends! they are leaving for 5 days to stay with my oldest son in one of the most beautiful places i’ve had the privilege to visit.
you ask why? well, like many children at this time of the year, he is graduating. he is graduating from the 8th grade, he is graduating from child to young man, he is graduating toward independence. we all make this transition, this graduation. each day, each year, we are graduating, getting a little older and hopefully a little wiser, graduating towards new life, new adventures, new journeys. it’s hard to be a part of, so many emotions. pride and sorrow fight each other for command of the tear ducts. but we walk thru them sometimes quicker than we want to. the heart squeezes tight, the throat closes, the head pounds, we watch and wait as we become painfully aware that soon and very soon life will be quite different.
always offering prayer with joy in my every prayer for you all…
oh Lord, walk with us thru this journey, along this path that humbles us. fortify us. make us strong enough to carry the weight of each graduation in our life. brace our knees as we fall to them in agony and cause us to see You thru each moment. protect our hearts and keep our tears and we will embrace the life You generously give to us each day.
that He who began a good work in you will perfect it
until the day of Christ Jesus
