Glimpses of Hope

Who could have told me that being a mom would be so challenging? It can be stressful, heart-wrenching, joyful and overwhelming all at the same time!
My oldest (14 yrs) left for Basketball camp in Oklahoma on Sunday . . . I hate to say it but I was excited he was going. I needed a break!! Teenagers are way harder that I expected! Do you know the feeling?
He called me today (the first time I've talked to him . . . except for a text) and asked if I could bring his Bible when we come to pick him up tomorrow. He said, "I want to give it to this guy I met at camp." Wow, was I excited. Just when I begin feeling a little unsure of his direction . . . God will provide me with a glimpse of hope.
"Lord, I praise You for working in the lives of my children. I pray that you get a hold of their heart. and when they stray from what is right may they get caught by conviction or a loving person."
