My Prayer For Shantel

I pray everyday for all my family and friends. But in addition to my daily prayers, I always say a special prayer for our daughter, Shantel, as she begins a new school year. This is my yearly prayer for Shantel:

Lord, Jesus,

Thank you for entrusting our beautiful daughter, Shantel, into our care.

As a new school year begins, please wrap her in your protective, loving, embrace.

Help her to not only find her paths to and from her classes, but also lead her to her life plan path.

Help her to meet people who will be her true friends and who will always have her best interests at heart.

Help her instructors inspire her to new heights.

Let there be financial, staff, and peer support available to meet her special needs,

Open her mind that she may gain the knowledge she needs, to earn the grades she needs, to earn the degrees she needs, to obtain the career she desires. A career that will enable her to live as a contributing member of society and always be happily independent in this life.

In Jesus name I pray.

Shantel’s classes begin on Monday, August 19th. Very early tomorrow I will take Shantel for her last practice session getting to and from her classes. Then, at 8:00 a.m. we have a meeting with all her instructors and the Disability Services Manager. Shantel is confident, ready, and excited, to get back to classes.

Today, I took Shantel to get a full set of gel nails,

and a pedi.

We had a fun-filled mother/daughter day to bring our summer to an end, and kick off another new school year.

Now, it’s all up to you my beautiful Shantel.

I’ll miss you being with me all day, but you know you are always in my thoughts and prayers.

Love Mom,

Stay Tuned!
