Our children need to grow into their own unique selves, not simply to be an extension of us. Otherwise, it becomes more about our unfulfilled wishes.
What will heaven be like? We will enjoy our loving, smiling Savior forever! We will be blown away by all of the ways our lives intersected with His divine intervention in our lives.
It is easy to get bogged down with concerns and struggles in our daily lives, but God calls us to turn our gaze to things above.
