Marvelous Prayerful Monday!!

I enjoy Monday's....
I know to most that sounds crazy, but Monday is my day to catch up on things after the weekend. I look forward to Monday's...but I have been dreading this one! It is very hard for me to NOT have my children around and with me at all times. Today, the oldest three are traveling with Grandpa and Grandma and cousin Julia to TN. They are so excited!! They packed as soon as they found out about the trip... three weeks ago! =) It will be such a blessed time for them as well as Gpa and Gma! I, on the other hand, do not want them to go! I will miss them too much! I want them to stay home safe and sound! What am I going to do without tucking them in at night?! How am I going to get through three days without them?! There are a lot of "I" in those statements and what the Lord has been telling me over and over is that it is not "I" but "HIM". No matter how much I want to keep my children here with me, like a mother hen with her chicks tucked under her wings...I am to let them go. They are really His anyway I'm just lucky enough to be their earthly Mommy! So off they go this morning with LOTS and LOTS of petitioning prayer for the Lords will to keep them safe! I praise God for the love we have for our children. When I think about that strong and unconditional it is, it's hard to realize that the Lord loves us so much more than that. Our simple minds can't comprehend that love...that AGAPE love the Lord has for His children. Anyway, I ask that if my sweet children cross your heart today that you would say a prayer for them as well.

I will be praying for your kids and YOU! I know how you feel, I hate not having my kids with me. A date with my husband is long enough for me :)

Aww, what a sweet post! I just dropped off my kiddos yesterday to spend the rest of the week with their grandparents in Minnesota (we're in Iowa) so we can finish packing and get moved into the new place without tripping over children ;-) I bet your kids are having a blast though!
