Over the last three years, my youngest son has been contemplating enlisting into the Royal Canadian Army. He is now twenty, and decided this summer it was time. We just received a call today that he will be starting his training at the end of September. This means he will be going to Ontario and leaving home for about three years.
As a mom, I am trying to be brave (not showing to much emotion) and encouraging (not saying to much concerning how I really feel.) My husband is being strong and encouraging with his counsel. It is terribly hard sometimes to let your children make choices for their lives that are contrary to what you want for them. I believe, God is in control of my son's life, and this decision will be for God's glory.
One more thought in closing: Over the last few years I have felt a need to either write prayers in a book to share with others or to start a prayer blog. I am not alone in this heart passion. I personally had kept a hard prayer journal for 12 years. I have added a link to my new blog dedicated to prayer and God's word (Feeding a Hungry Soul.) On that site there are other links to friends blogs who have a similar heart call. If you have a prayer blog please let me know and I will add it to the link.
