The post I wrote earlier titled Yearning for Change was out of anger and anguish over what happened this past weekend in Connecticut. It was also out of frustration as a professional in the field of social work who knows that those most often affected by cuts in budget are children and families. After writing it, I was gently reminded that true change really does start at home. Fathers and Mothers need to love their children. Grandparents should, if possible, wrap their love around their families and provide support. Parents should be building their children up, instead of tearing them down. Parents just need to be parents.
I decided to re-post a piece I wrote for my children back in June. Children are always on my mind – not just my children, but children of the world. No child should ever go to bed wondering if he or she matters to this world. Earlier in the week, I prayed to the Lord and cried out, “What are we doing to Your children, Father?!?” I realized, though, that He who holds the stars, also holds our children.
This piece I wrote about in the post linked below is not just for my children, but for yours as well. After this week, my desire penned months ago seems to have even more relevance. If you wish, click on the link and read it. Blessings to you and yours!
