The Road of life

by - July 04, 2008

Sometimes I think about the world and our country, and it makes me worry about my children so much. They have so much ahead of them. So many blocks of life that they haven't yet walked down. So many corners unturned. So many challenges.

My oldest daughter is twelve. Soon she'll be going through some changes, they're already starting. I wish I could just hold her hand and guide her through life, helping her make the right choices.

  1. Juanita, I understand why you might worry about your children. Our granddaughters spent the last night with us. They are so trusting of everything, Jordan is 10 and Kendyl is 5. Whe I tink about the future,I've learned to trust in the Lord with all my heart and to lean not on my own understnding.


  2. Yes, I've heard that before. It's very good advice. I really do try that, but every now and then I catch myself worrying about things. Thanks for commenting :)

  3. I really like this picture.

    Change is scary, isn't it? It's hard for me to think that with each year, I lose a little bit of my kid. It's hard. But we'll all be okay.

  4. Thanks for commenting. Glad to see I'm not the only one feeling like this.

  5. I wish my babies were babies again. My oldest will be 12 in the next couple of weeks and I already see the changes. Scary!!!

  6. I know what you mean. My twelve-year-old will be 13 in March. It is kind of scary.
