As kids and grandkids return to school (or homeschool), let's keep them in prayer ... that God will fan the flames of their natural curiosity and ability to learn, and that He will help them to make good decisions. That they will show kindness to classmates and have compassion beyond their years. That they will develop an eternal perspective, not an earthly one, and become rooted and grounded in His love. And that parents and teachers would have patience and insight to deal with each child's unique personality, strengths and weaknesses. What would you add to the list?
