We are being given an opportunity to walk another child through their senior year of high school. Looking back at the last go around is helpful. A verse comes to mind just as questions/fears begin to spin me in circles. “And He said to them, ‘Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation.” (Mark 16:15). The answer is there and peace quiets my heart again. We will continue to live the gospel day in and day out with joy. We were not asked to take fear, distrust and judgement into the world, now were we? So that is not how this year will be spent, for this baggage is much too heavy. And when the day comes when this one goes into the part of the world that God has planned, he will know what to do. Excitement and joy stirs just thinking about what he has been entrusted with! Maybe letting go will be a little easier this time around, for I can trust the One who is ultimately sending him. I have witnessed it before.
