just a quick follow-up to my blog about caffeine.  my son & i attempted to visit the new campus Starbucks, but were disappointed to find out that it doesn’t open until tomorrow.  guess we’ll save that cup’a caffeine for another day.

ok.  while i might as well mention another bummer.


now, i know that i blogged about how much i enjoy shopping for supplies & all of that, but today i began to feel that stress creep into my stomach, like a rock.  you moms know what i’m talking about…….sweating the details……details like, what teachers will he get?  are they Christians?  will they understand his peanut allergy?  what peer group will he be surrounded with this year?  will there be another Christian boy in his class that he will bond with? 

ok, enough of the worrying. 

i just need to remind myself that it’s all in God’s hands.  every year God continues to bless us with working out all of the details for His glory.  we don’t always understand or realize in the beginning, why things are a certain way, but come May, we can see God’s hand has been there, leading, protecting & guiding Nick throughout his school year.

in tomorrow’s blog, i will include some ‘prayer whispers’ that will focus on our children’s relationships with their peers and their teachers (& coaches).

  • “Thank you for beginning a good work in  _________, and that you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.”  Amen  (Philippians 1:6)

prayers for our children

a few years ago, i came across a super book that i would recommend to anyone.  it’s called “Praying the Scriptures for your Children”, by Jodie Berndt.  it takes scriptures and uses them as practical and personal ways to pray for children.  the book divides them into categories, such as their salvation, physical health and safety, spiritual protection, emotional well-being, relationships and their future, (just to name a few). i have used it so much, that i have decided to include some of my favorites in my blog.  i hope that they become as meaningful to you as they are to me.

  • “Fill ___________ with your Holy Spirit, that she (he) might bear the Spirit’s fruit: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.”  Amen  (Galatians 5:22-23)
