Ponder:Do I have one child who struggles, and one who does not? Do I celebrate more when the struggling child succeeds?
Pray:Dear God, please bless my struggling child with whatever is needed to bring him/her back. Also, please remind me to to recognize and affirm my other child who consistently does the right thing.
