...I sent my babies off to school today for the first time. The questions linger in my mind- did I prepare them well enough for this day? Are they secure enough in my love? Do they know God never leaves nor forsakes them? Are they ready to choose friends wisely, and be a good friend?
A chapter is closing, and new one is already being written. This is another chance to let go, and watch them fall into the loving hands of God. I can trust Him with my babies. And so, I am very grateful as we begin a new season of life together as a family. We are also thankful to have witnessed another new beginning for Emmy Mugisha and his family, as he was ordained as an AGC Reverend yesterday!
