God’s “Silence”

12 Then he said to me, “Do not fear, Daniel, for from the first day that you set your heart to understand, and to humble yourself before your God, your words were heard; and I have come because of your words. 13 But the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me twenty-one days; and …

On one hand, we are watching our flower blossom.  On the other hand, our sweet cherub is turning into quite the tyrant. As a mom who enjoys like-mindedness …
