But I must let them go, as their lives belong to the Lord, in some senses, whether or not they will ever call Him their Father. Oh how I wish they would! My job is only to plant seeds, to nurture and keep them safe while they are 'mine' and entrust them to the Lord when my job is over. Thank you, Lord, for the chance to love this group of children. Thank you for the many conversations we had about life, hard work, and caring for one another. Thank you for giving me the grace to restrain from strangling them on occasion....*smile*....help them to fly, broken wings and all. I love you. Amen.
