School starts tomorrow and I can’t say that I’m not a bit excited. I love the no routine of summer, late night movies, morning snuggles, and spontaneous day trips, but, there is a nice element of the fall back to school routine.
That said tonight, the night before school starts we are heading to church for Royal Rangers. Some people would disagree with a school night activity right about now but I think there’s no place better the night before putting them back in the hands of the public school.
You see they will be at school more of their awake hours then they will be at home in a lot of cases. They will be around all sorts of kids who are raised all sorts of ways. I can’t control that in school or when they are grown and enter the real world.
What I can do is prepare them, provide opportunities for them to renew their minds, and surround them with Godly influence when I am with them. Its my choice to make, my responsibility. I do t know what tomorrow holds for them but I will know that their hearts are full of the love God and that He will be with them as they conquer the first day of school.
Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it. Proverbs 22:6
