We make choices for our kids that are not easy. Ones they do not themselves understand. Choices they resent and hate us for. But, we do it anyway because we love them.
It hurts us, too. We feel their pain and sadness like it was our own. Making those tough decisions are not easy and seldom go smoothly.
But, they are necessary.
I keep telling myself this because today we had to make one of those tough decisions.
Others would lead me to believe we did it all wrong – in the wrong order. in the wrong way. by the wrong methods.
But, we did it all to the best of our ability. We tried to make the decisions we believe are right. We prayed, we talked, we waited.
Now, we go forward. We don’t look back. We move forward anticipating what is to come. Believing it will all be well in the end.
For his anger lasts only a moment, but his favor lasts a lifetime; weeping may stay for the night, but rejoicing comes in the morning. Psalm 30:5
This is my prayer for today.
