Just a little scripture for those moments when you feel, like I do sometimes, that figuring out the way forward with my kids is like charting a path thru an unknown wilderness….
1 The wilderness and the solitary place shall be glad for them; and the desert shall rejoice,..
2 … and rejoice even with joy and singing:
3 Strengthen ye the weak hands, and confirm the feeble knees.
4 Say to them that are of a fearful heart, Be strong, fear not: behold, your God will come … he will come and save you.
5 Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped.
6 Then shall the lame man leap as an hart, and the tongue of the dumb sing: for in the wilderness shall waters break out, and streams in the desert.
10: they shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.
