Well, how about some of the things I wonder about?
Will Samuel ever start using real words, ones that other people can understand?
Will I baby him too much as he gets older, letting him get away with things because, well, you know...?
Will he ever live independently?
What about college?
How far can he go?
Do I focus so much on him that I sometimes neglect the others?
What do other people think about Samuel?
What will they think about him when the little boy "cute" wears off?
Does he get enough to eat? (he can be picky)
Should he be sent to preschool? (none of the others were, I'm not comfortable sending my young children to spend a good portion of the day with someone else)
Will he rebel as a teen?
What does he understand about our prayer time? (he fold his hand, whispers soft s sound, then says Ma Ma, Ma Ma for amen)
These are just a few of the questions. But then, I guess we have questions about all of our children. And we don't need all the answers. God knows. We just have to trust and obey.
- When we walk with the Lord in the light of His Word,
What a glory He sheds on our way!
While we do His good will, He abides with us still,
And with all who will trust and obey.
Trust and obey, for there’s no other way
To be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey.
- Not a shadow can rise, not a cloud in the skies,
But His smile quickly drives it away;
Not a doubt or a fear, not a sigh or a tear,
Can abide while we trust and obey.
- Not a burden we bear, not a sorrow we share,
But our toil He doth richly repay;
Not a grief or a loss, not a frown or a cross,
But is blessed if we trust and obey.
- But we never can prove the delights of His love
Until all on the altar we lay;
For the favor He shows, for the joy He bestows,
Are for them who will trust and obey.
- Then in fellowship sweet we will sit at His feet,
Or we’ll walk by His side in the way;
What He says we will do, where He sends we will go;
Never fear, only trust and obey.
