Hope your having a super Saturday with your family, friends, co-workers or whoever you may be around today. Praying that you will let God use you in a mighty way that you never have done before and be courageous in his presence. Today I am working on things in the home front. Organizing kids rooms, cleaning, and spending lots of family time with hugs and giggles before our first year of Kindergarten starts.
I have shared with a few of my accountability partners and friends that I am not emotionally ready for my first one to go to kindergarten. It was a huge leap of faith to put him in Preschool but then God placed the preschool job in my lap and I have been blessed to be a part of these last two years with him.
Just thinking about him going to Kindergarten and growing up makes me nauseous. I am a fearful mom and this is an area that I have always had to pray about it. I have a huge phobia leaving my children with others. God has always comforted me and held my hand with me during this season. Yet here I am again praying and praying that God will protect and ease my mind and continue to hold my hand.
He has picked out his backpack, lunch box, and new school shoes. I am still in denial that he will be going in one week. I am just dealing with the motions right now. I am purely emotional although I know he will be fine.
I pray that my influence on him will stay with him each minute of the day. I pray that our bible studies, our activities, and our prayers will guide him in a way that an innocent little boy could only be lead. To God be his glory.
As I tell myself and I always share with my accountability and everyone around me
We don’t know what our story unfolds but we can shine for others, love with a big heart, and dream big!
I guess it’s only fair I teach this to my soon too even for Kindergarten. So today I will teach him these words. For he is a son of God even in a Kindergarten world.
We will see how I am doing next week and the first day?!?!
