Today is family day here. A new government holiday. I am thrilled Mr. C gets to stay home with me for an extra day this week. We are going to have a nice relaxing day of nothing together and just be a family. I do however have a few things I struggle with, with this holiday.
I pray for those children who don’t have families. who are stuck in our horrible foster system. I pray for those who are not safe in their houses. I pray with a mothers heart for these children. I pray that God will protect them from the bad things that are happening. I pray for those children who are waiting for adoption, but don’t seem to get the opportunity to be adopted b/c the government and society has deemed them too hard to handle. I pray for those families that desire children, yet don’t have an open heart to adoption. I pray for Gods will to bless and keep our families that struggle to stay as families. I pray for those who don’t have families; that God will provide them with one.
I pray these things with frustration and tears.
I pray for you family. That God blesses it and keeps it in his care.
