Lord of mercy and love, Thank you for my children. Thank you for their successes. Thank you even for their hardships because it builds the character that I want them to have and the character you want me to have. (Because parenting always leads me back to you.) I can't love them without your love or lead them without following you. I need you more than they need me or I need them. Just you. Help me to trust you with their lives, through joys and sorrows, triumphs and pain. You have already shown yourself to be trustworthy-- They are your love language to me. Your whispers of hope, healing, and heaven. They are my greatest blessings. Thank you. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I love you. And loving them gives me a glimpse of who you are. Amen.
