Trust

I have thought for a long time that I was the one putting my children in God's Trust; today, while listening to the radio, I realised that actually He has trusted me with them...

This thought reminded me of a poem I read many moons ago while at Secondary.  I won't quote it all but the verse I am relating to is this:

"I've looked this world over
In search for teachers true,
And from the throngs that crowd
Life's lanes, I have selected you.


Now will you give him all your love,
Nor count the labor vain,"
Edgar Guest 

I have to think, though, that we will all learn from Eilidh, just as she will be guided by us and, perhaps, is she so chooses, by God above too.
