Lord, you know how I grieve for my family’s presence in my life. It has been ten years I have been without them. I have missed my 2 grand children’s growing into young teens. I also have missed my son whom we so badly wanted in our lives and was the only child I was every able to carry after four miscarriages. I do not understand how he so easily turned his back to me never looking back. Lord, soften their hearts with compassion and love, and if it is your will, speak to them and encourage them to “come home”, again. My husband has been dead for 17 years and I truly hope he does not know of all of this as it would break his heart. Thank you, Lord, for listening to my prayer. You are so good and kind and caring to all of us. Thank you for your love to us. I praise you for everything.
