Prayers for a special someone

My little guy attends preschool twice a week and those 6 hours a week are usually filled with runs to the grocery store, a workout at the gym, coffee with a friend or cleaning. They tend to go by so quickly, as I'm trying to get as much done as possible. See, my little guy loves my attention so when we are at home it's usually, "your turn momma" as he gives me a car to roll to him. He loves to play, play and play with me so I don't get much done around the house. 

Today I had planned to spend most of the three hours cleaning my house. At first I put the radio on and then realized that I needed to make a call while I had some peace and quiet. After the call, my thoughts started going and I forgot to turn the music back on. I started to pray for our family In TX, for my husband and for my little guy, then my prayer changed to a prayer for my son and his future love. 

I started thinking about the girl that would one day steal his heart. I wondered if she's been born yet or if she's simply a twinkle in her parents eyes. I thought, will she ever know how close he is to me? How much he needs me and my constant attention? Will he tell her that he breastfed past 2 and slept best when I had my arm under him?... Probably not. I started praying for her and her family.  My wish is that her parents are teaching her of Gods love, as I am teaching my little guy. 

I know that one day my son will grow up, he will sleep in his own room (without his mommy beside him), he will go off to college, and be the man that God intends for him to be. Right now it seems like so far away but just as these two years have raced by so will many many more years. So today as he naps beside me I will cherish the closeness, the love and the happiness and treasure the bond that I have with my son. 

I will also stay in prayer for his love and her family, for I know that God has already chosen her and chosen their paths. I pray that I'm able to instill Gods love in my sons heart so that he may grow up to be a Godly man and radiate Gods love through his actions.

Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

Kids Academy Giveaway


Kid's Academy is all about helping children learn verbal, writing and math skills in an easy and fun manner. Apps such as 123 Tracing and Bingo ABC have been top-50 educational apps in the App Store, and Kid’s Academy has also brought the well-known stories and nursery rhymes The Three Little Pigs and Five Little Monkeys to life with interactive apps. The simple interfaces of the apps allow children to take the reins and play on their own, but the sing-a-longs and other activities are perfect for parent or teacher engagement, as well. Research has shown that singing along with nursery rhymes has cognitive and physical benefits for children. Not only are children learning new words and the context in which to use them, but strengthening tongue and mouth muscles at an early age will help with pronunciation skills.
