had a conversation with our church caretaker this morning.
I asked about his son; he did his best to smile but I could tell he was having a hard time
I reassured him that all high school students are the same:
sometimes good, sometimes bad – but that’s normal
I told him not to worry and we’ll continue to pray and look after him
he finally cracked a smile and said that one day everyone will know how much you love the kids
I said it doesn’t matter, as long as God knows
I walked away questioning my response
..questioning my heart behind that response
but God knows.
