After incidents like Uvalde, Oxford, and COVID outbreaks you maybe feeling anxious about your child returning to school.
A friend of mine lives near Uvalde and hearing stories from her made it very real. I know as parents it can be scary, to let your children be in the care of someone else.
I think being a parent sometimes means being irrationally protective.
My prayer for you is that every day you will pray over your children.Chellbee
As well as love on them. Cherish each moment. Hug them a little longer each day.
I understand the decision to return to school in person or remote was not taken lightly. There are so many factors to consider, learning styles, desires for social interaction, childcare, etc.
Pray without ceasing.1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
Today I am sharing a prayer for our children as they return back to school. In hope that these prayers will encourage you as you entrust your children to God protection.
