I ask prayers for my daughter Samantha, she will be leaving home for college on Thursday the 22nd. She will be staying local but living at the dorms. May the Lord our God protect her and during this transition, most of all give her wisdom to make the right decisions. I also ask for prayers for peace and healing of my heart that is aching and sad! Although I am extremely proud and happy for her accomplishments, I will miss her terribly! She is my first born and the thought of not kissing her good night, and hearing her sing around the breaks my heart. I thank you in advance for your prayers. God bless.
Dear @pavila766, thank you for sharing this prayer request and this note about the great growth of your family. Let us come Together in Prayer as one community and pray for her, that she makes great decisions while spreading her wings to fly. There is no doubt that she knows and appreciates the love you have for her. She certainly appreciates all the times you've spent together, all of the hugs, and all of the good night kisses. I just wanted to share with you that as I grew up, one of the things I most appreciated about my own parents is that I knew they --- trusted me ---. That does not mean I always did the right thing or always made the best decisions. But just knowing that I was trusted to move forward and learn from my mistakes was HUGE. You are lucky that you will still have her in town. And I am sure that if you maintain the look and feel of her bedroom, she will always feel welcome to return. May I suggest that you make a plan to write a real good old fashioned tangible letter and mail it to her once a month? She will cherish them and surely keep them in a box, for decades to come. And she may even write back to you. It will be fun to have a long distance pen pal relationship with her, even though she's just a zip code away! Peace be with all of you during this exciting time that will teach you both a few lessons 😉
Thank you, your beautiful words bring much needed joy to my heart! I will follow your advice and put my faith in the Lord. 🙏🏼
