Do you wish to provide a safe place for your children and grandchildren, that they may avoid the trials and difficulties of life? Your instinct to protect them is natural and commendable, but don’t protect them from me. What processes occurred in your own life to bring you to the place you are now? Didn’t you have to go through some difficulties? Don’t you think you are better off because of them? Do you understand that the same principle is as true for them as it was for you? Yet I protected you from real harm even while I was forming and molding your character. I want you to understand that I can do the same for them while you pray for them.
My sister is home from the hospital and doing well. My wife is on IV antibiotics and doing fairly well too. Thanks for your prayers.
