Let them fly!!
Boy has it been a long week. It is Friday night and I am home enjoying making soap and sewing all at the same time. I find myself enjoying staying home more and more. I guess because I have so much I like to do at home. For so many years it was a constant on the go with our boys and their activities, don't get me wrong I loved every minute of it. But we have started a new chapter in our lives and that is life without children at home. While I enjoy it sometimes, I miss my boys very very much. I must confess that I had a hard time when they both told me that God had called them into ministry. Church people can be mean, jus sayin. It is a faith walk every day that God will take care of them and keep them safe. I have always been a "fixer", but I have had to take my hands off and let God have control. That is hard sometimes for moms. Don't be afraid to let your kids fly. That is what God created them to do. Dream and become awesome Kingdom workers. So I pray that if you are struggling with letting your children go, take heart God is in control. No it is not easy, and there are many hard days when you miss them very much, but I know that they are where God has called them to be. I don't understand sometimes but I have total faith in my God that HE is in control.
