In your difficult times I wish for you to draw closer to God, not push Him away. God didn’t cause your difficult times; he wants to help you with your difficulties. Allow Him into your life like never before. Talk with Him continually. Let His loving and caring arms wrap around you and help you through whatever you are going through. This is how you go through difficult times. You and God hand in hand.
Today, say the things you’ve neglected to say to your children. Shower each of them with love, praise and respect. In person, by phone, skype, email or text – where ever they are.
