Forgiveness. I have a married daughter with three sons. The parents don't know how to parent. They spend every waking moment together at the expense of the boys. The boys are there to clean the house and to be punished for not doing it right.
When they do take the boys out for "fun"; they take them to see a "R" movie or buy them a "R" PS2 game.
They live on three acres of land in the country and won't let the boys go outside if they are not home, because they are "fearful" that the sky will fall on them. Therefore, the boys are overweight, swear like demons, and know "murder-death-kill" (borrowed from Demolition Man).
They claim to be Christians. So yeah, forgiveness is my issue. I know I have a root of bitterness. I pray and ask for help, guidance, direction and the ability to forgive them. It has not happened yet. Maybe I don't want it to.
Please communicate any suggestions and prayers to my email: email@example.com
