Becoming A Parent

We cannot control our children’s lives

We have to let them be

Let them go into the world

Watch them carefully

 

Love has done its basic deed

Planted in the heart

You are loved – that is your creed

Now you play your part

 

Life will make a mess for us

Foolishness might reign

Others retreat in anger

They never got to gain

 

But loving parents persevere

Carry their children’s pain

Keep an ever-open door

Welcome home again

 

The story of the prodigal

Is Jesus’ great surprise

God is always there for us

Open up your eyes
