The weekends this fall have been pretty busy, and promise to continue to be so for a while. Let me tell you about a couple of recent ones. This past weekend, we took our beloved Sara on a college trip, just the three of us. It was a trip wrapped in much prayer, as we desperately need God’s leadership and direction in such a big decision. Though formal decisions have not been made, I am confident that God has been, and is, directing her steps. We had a great visit, and have much to think about and pray about. Still more steps to take, and we pray God closes any door to something not right for her. However, today, now, she is definitely excited about what lies ahead for her. Exciting times for our family, for sure.
Last weekend was Sara’s Homecoming weekend – so it was also very busy and full of activities. Is it boasting to talk about how stunningly beautiful she was in her dress? With her hair done up so amazingly? Oh! My grown up girl sure did amaze me all dressed up! She was a vision indeed.
I must also report that through these most eventful activities, I have not shed many tears. (much to her delight, I’m sure!) I have felt God’s hand on me, calming what could be such emotional times. Perhaps it is a good thing to be so very busy, that I don’t stop to fully process the finality of each senior milestone? I don’t know, but here’s what I do know. . . . my girl is exceptional. In so many ways. I have so much to be thankful for. She loves Jesus. Her faith walk is her own, and she is striving to honor Him in all she does. (at least most of the time!) She makes great choices, she has great plans for the future ahead of her. The time is coming that she will begin a season apart from her parents home. Though I’m quite sure there are tears ahead for me, I truly trust my God with her. With each of my children. It is the only way I can truly rest. In Christ. I trust Him. (and please, God, help me when I don’t!) Can you say the same? I certainly pray you can –
Thanks for stopping by. Have a great week. Trust HIM – He is faithful.
