is not an easy thing for me. I love each one of our children so much and it has given me so much fulfillment as a mother to do all I can for each of them. I feel that it is just part of me to do all I can for them to teach them to be responsible litle people. A big learning curve for me is that I don't have to do it all. This morning I let Noah ride his bike to school with some neighborhood kids who have done it for a while. This gives me a little more time to get the younger ones ready and off to their school. Looking at this photo of Noah is teaching me to have trust in him riding safely and making good decisions and also trusting other people to not ever do a bad thing to one of our children. God has Noah in his hands for the 1/4 of a mile ride to school that I can't see him. It is a minimal ride to school but one that is teaching me a huge lesson to trust in the Lord with all my heart and that He is the watcher of our kids.
The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and I am helped. My heart leaps for joy and I will give thanks to him in song.
