As most parents will tell you, it’s hard to let go of our children. When God brings them into our lives, He also lays on us the responsibility of caring for them, teaching them the right things and giving them things that will help them prepare for their future. \

When they take their first steps, we are right behind them to catch them if they fall. When they learn to ride a bike, we add additional wheels to make it safe and walk behind to make sure they don’t crash to the ground. We provide helmets, safety gear, booster seats, hand sanitizer and a variety of other things to protect them. We basically don’t want them to experience some of the pain we did in growing up, so we do as much as we can to shelter them.

There does come a time when we have to let go of that protection and let them learn through experience. God does that with us every day. He allows challenges to come into our lives so that we learn how to deal with them. He knows the pain we feel. He has experienced the suffering of losing of a child. He knows what it’s like to be betrayed, rejected and scorned for no reason, but He is our loving Father and He let’s go of us so that we will return like prodigal sons and daughters to His loving arms for protection. Letting go isn’t easy, but letting God is.

About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.

    Thank you for the encouragement ❣️ both of mine are in the Air Force. One in Alaska~one in Montana getting ready to move to Spokane, WA. My grandson, Asher from Alaska, was born last July and my little grand girl, Whitley from Washington 😉, will be born in June. I’m so proud of my sons and daughter-in-law’s. I grieve the days of gone but then again, I cry with joy too. The tough times, the good times, and all I ever wanted was for them to be happy. I pray the blood of Jesus around them all daily. And try and live simply to put back money to travel to them. Years of going West has solidified my trails there. I love them with all my heart and am so glad their wings were spread to go live an abundant and joyful life! I’m so grateful to God ❣️🤗
