A friend posted this on facebook today. Wouldn't it be a great thing if all of us who were praying for our children took the time to talk them through some opening day scenerios?
Special request to all you kids returning to school: If you see someone who is struggling to make friends or being bullied because he/she doesn't have many friends or because they are shy or not as pretty or not dressed in the most "in" clothes PLEASE step up. Say HI or at least SMILE at them in the hallway. You never know what that person might face outside of school. Your kindness might just make a BIG difference in someone's life!
Lord Jesus, Be the words my child needs to hear as school comes closer. You know what it is they will be facing and what children in their schools will need encouragement. May our children be the good in their schools. May you be present and protect them; strengthen them to be your hands and your smiles to others.
