Five Minute Friday Guide #fmf #amwriting

This week's Five Minute Friday prompt is Guide.

As I watch my kids grow up and start making more and more decisions on their own I realize that my time to teach and train my kids is dwindling.

I can teach them all the subjects they need to learn, let them study their interests, and chase their dreams but I cannot make them think the way I want them to.

They have their own thoughts, their own ideas, and their own convictions in life. I may not be able to make decisions for them or force them to the life I have dreamt up in my mind for each one, but I can guide them.

I can guide them in their relationships, I can guide them in their studies, I can guide them in their career choices, and I can guide them in living for God but they will grow up to be their own person and make their own way in life along with many mistakes and accomplishments. I just need to make sure I guide them to the best of my abilities.

Thank you, Kate, for hosting the Five Minute Friday prompt every week.

It's one of the most difficult things, I think, to negotiate as a parent and it doesn't matter how old your kids get! We can only follow the example of our own great Guide.
