I’ve become quite a worrier. Mostly worrying about my children.
Have they had lunch?
Have they done their homework?
Where are they in life?
Are they happy?
Add to the mix a granddaughter and watch my worry wrinkles multiply by the second. But I have learned these things are trivial. This morning a very sweet friend prepares to send her son off to serve the United States as a Marine. I cannot imagine the level of anguish she must feel. So today, in honor of her, I release some of my worries and focus those efforts on letting her know how much I love her.
I am praying for you, my sister.
I come to you today, interceding for a dear friend who I am sure is struggling to find the right words to pray. Lord I pray peace over her as she stretches to a level of bravery that most of us will never know. And God I pray for our sweet Soldier, that you will wrap him in your arms of protection, give him the strength and courage that he needs, and may he always feel your presence.
