He knows my mother's heart cries at simple things, and this is no exception. Honestly, I think his heart is touched too.
Then that moment...
I know it isn't an encouraging word today... scripture to make the day a bit lighter... but perhaps a bit of testimony, a realization of one mom; that age-old-idea that our children grow up too fast and I really wouldn't mind waiting a little longer! But I am grateful God guides their hearts. That the joy of each passing season can remain. And when times are rough, and they have been rough in spots over the years, there is always hope. Sometimes hope simply grows in the waiting.
Well, maybe I do have a scripture to share...
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.
- Romans 15:13
May your waiting be filled with peace and hope as this Christmas season begins.
Many blessings to all of you,
