What beautiful warm weather we are having......just what i would order for January! No snow please!!! I hope Feb and March are as nice to us as Jan. has been!!! It all just makes me feel like gardens, long summer days, sun and suntans, and I am getting a little ahead aren't I?????
Its been wonderful to have Caleb here these few weeks, especially since Daniel is in Australia!! Wonder if we will ever end up at the house all together again??? Its been so fun to have Kyle, Caleb's friend from MD here as well, to help work with all the guys on another school job they have been working on. Our evenings will not be the same when Kyle leaves!!! We should be very "healthy" from laughing and laughing so much!!!
Seasons of Love.....you love them from the very start. You never stop loving them. You even love them in death. Love knows no boundaries or it shouldn't. I never thought I could get to a place where I would want them not to be here in our home but I have....its when I know that they have and are learning love and have found someone to give that love to in a way that I hope they learned while they were in this home. I have loved having Caleb here, its been fun for him to be with his siblings and just to be home, but you know what, its just not the same and thats not bad at all. I have discovered something this week. I want him to be with the one he loves...... more than with me or us. Of course I know he loves us, always will. But when 2 people are in love and love each other, you want them to be together even if it means your very own child is not close by. I want that for each child, to fall in love with that special person God has for them, to learn and grow together, to love each other!! I love Caleb (all of them) but the way to love him most is to let him "go love." Its easy to do that if you know that God has brought 2 people together in His Providences. I find myself looking back this past year of him and Kristen and it just makes me smile to see all the obstacles, prayers, pleadings, counsel and trying to tell your son a few things about romance and love and how it needs to happen!! So with arms open, I say "go love!" And by His grace, in God's time I desire to say that to each of them.
Love is not keeping them for me to love only,
I have had my season of love, my love for them will never
have any boundaries.
now, you go love......
The wonder of child rearing. I think it has many mysteries that are not found til upon them. Who could in this world ever tell us or fill a book with how it all happens or what to do. I wont attempt to. I think our best source is the Scripture itself. Thankful for grace that covers the past and directs the future. Still got lots here to have my season of love with.........
Oh, guess what????? I won the $200 gift card from my favorite store!!! I cant wait to go in and see what I can't live without!!! If you "liked" my photo on fb, thanks soooo much!!!!
