It's the fresh beginning of a new school year,
New backpacks and freshly sharpened pencils next to unbroken crayons.
Lord, please surround my children with Your mighty protection,
Be the lifter if their heads, the faithful God who goes before them as always.
Please calm this mama's heart as she sends off a middle schooler (gulp)
A 3rd and 1st grader, and an afternoon preschooler (be still my heart).
