Well, I have been having to fight the fear factor lately. My oldest daughter is driving. She got her permit and has been on the road. On top of that, she just left this morning for a 10 day short term mission trip in Central America- her first time out of the country.
Whether I am next to her in the car or watching an airplane icon travel over the gulf of Mexico- the feeling is the same....HELPLESS.
All I can do is give her to the Father- she is His. When she was a tiny baby, I used to rock her to sleep and pray so hard as I held her 'Lord, put Your angels over her- please protect her' and that prayer has not changed in 15 years.
I just tremble a little more now as I say it.
