In the news lately, there have been so many unfortunate reports about crimes against children. Last night as I lay awake thinking thinking about these children, their families, and really the depravity of all humanity, I decided that I needed some comfort by being with the two of you. At 1:30 am, I left my bed (and a snoring Daddy), and I bunked with you guys in your room. I checked to see if you were sleeping safely and soundly, I snuggled, and I kissed your cheeks, and then I zonked out in Kent's bottom bunk.

At 6:15 this morning Kent, you rolled over and noticed me in your sleeping space, and said, "Mommy! What are you doing in my bed? He heee".

"Sometimes Moms have bad dreams too, and they like to be by their kids."

That seemed a good enough answer to you. You rolled back over and slept soundly until 7.

Boys, I pray for God's divine protection for your lives. I pray for His angels to take charge over you. I pray for Him to be with you at all times, since I cannot be.

Jesus, be a shelter and fortress for Parker and Kent. Be the hen that hides them under the shadow of your wings. Protect them from evil thoughts, attitudes, and people. Amen.

You know I have been thinking the same thing. Every time I sign into AOL mail there is a story about some form of child abuse. It seems like these acts are happening more these days, but now I am just beginning to think they are just being reported more. I can't help but to think about my children and if anything horrific would happen to them and it makes me sick. All I can do is pray for those kids that God protects those who are being a bused and that he helps those who have suffered from abuse.
