This is a fathers prayer

Sydney has been sick all week, mild fever, stuffy nose, tired, etc…Her mom thinks it might of been the swine flu, some of the symptoms were spot on, but they are for the regular flu’s as well.  If it is/was I am ok with that she is getting better by the day and it should keep her from getting it again as the body build immune systems once infected to help keep it away.  that is good, God builds great systems and our bodies are a perfect example.

So as a parent we are inclined to worry about our children.  I once asked my Dad, Kool Lool, when you stop worrying about your children.  He said you never do.  So this week I leave you with this, enjoy and say a little for your children.

I know you’re listening as i lay me down to sleep
It’s not for me i ask, but my children’s souls to keep
It seems the world is going crazy
And though i need to do my share
Could you please take them under wing
Watch over them especially
Keeping them safe from everything
This is a mother’s prayer
I know you’re listening in the silence of the night
The news is blistering but i hold on to your light
And though there’s darkness all around us
By my faith i know you’re there
Give me the strength to lead the way
Send me the words i need to say
Use me to guide them day to day
This is a mother’s prayer
This is a father’s prayer
I know i can’t do this by my self
I thank you for your help
I know you’re listening so i know i’m not alone
I feel you here with me as we all face down the unknown
Could you return us to your garden
Where no one’s hurt and no one’s scared
Free us from pride and bitterness
Keep us so close we won’t forget
Teach us to love as you love
This is a mother’s prayer
This is a father’s prayer
Teach us to love as you love
This is a mother’s, a father’s prayer
