Psalm 127:2 (NIV)
“In vain you rise early and stay up late, toiling for food to eat– for he grants sleep to those he loves.”

I can relate to always wanting to smooth things over for my children and not letting them learn the lessons God had fir them. I have let go of that and i just say” You can have them Jesus, they’re all yours.” It doesnt mean that i never want to help, but it means i know now when to back off and let the Lord be the Lord.
So true and so hard. But His hands are the best hands to place our children. Thank you for sharing part of your parenting journey with us, Tonna!
