This time of year is very exciting and scary for a high school senior. They are excited about graduating and going to all the parties. But at the same time, they are scared about what lies ahead.
As a parent, you can only hope and pray that you have taught the lessons that will carry them on through life and provided them the tools needed to become adults. In my case, my daughter chose to go to another church during the end of her senior year. It was hard for me because going to church is a family thing. But at the same time I realized that if I allowed her to go to another church, it shows that she may follow that path when she goes to college.
Parents always wonder whether they have given their children all the necessary tools to carry them through life. All we can do is pray that we have planted the seeds for them to draw upon every day.
