So many parents keep on asking themselves: “Where did I go wrong?”
It’s good to examine one’s conscience.
But it happens all too often that we examine the wife’s or husband’s conscience instead of our own. “I did my best, and the problems are his fault, because he was such a poor role model for the kids…”
Or: “I did my best, and she…”
And maybe again we need God’s point of viiew?
Maybe we should stand in the shoes of the One who did His best, who gave to His children all He had…
Maybe we need this experience to feel the pain of God, who is suffering because His beloved child is rejecting His love? And maybe then we could endure this pain of unreciprocal, rejected love, preserving hope and love?
And hope does not disappoint.
I’m very close to you in my prayers,
