It’s Graduation Time

When my children were little, they were quite the handful! What one didn’t dream up, the other one did! I had 2 very rambunctious boys 1 year apart. I did what any mother would do in my shoes – I prayed!

And I prayed and I prayed…

I didn’t pray for well-behaved children, I didn’t pray for peace and quiet, or even good grades. The only thing I prayed for was a high school diploma for each of them. In this sea of garnet and gray…


sat my youngest about to receive the answer to the last of my prayers.     


He was the very last student to receive his diploma.


Thank you Lord Jesus for answering my prayers. Amen.


  1. God blessed you and your family. Congratulations to all of you. We had 6 and they all made it through college and 2 through graduate school. Now we are helping them pray for the success of their children. Family, faith and life it all goes together. Blessings
