You know the old expression, “Time Flies,” I sincerely felt that as I watched my youngest daughter drive out of the driveway this morning on her way to church. Yep, all by herself, no coaching from mom, no extra set of eyes, and definitely less “in the car deep talks.” ((( Whaaaaa)))
Our bonding time was mostly in the car, whether it was going to school, church, and soccer practice. *sniff sniff* I’ve treasured all of those moments in the car. It gave us a chance to catch up with out any distractions. We were more receptive to hear and listen to each other. I’ve spoken wisdom in her life from the car.
Now…it’s time to pray that not only is she safe from destination to destination, but that she recalls and remembers all of the hours of talking, laughing, and wisdom I’ve imparted to her. That she will now use her car time to soak in the Lord, talk to Him now instead of me. Some of the most precious alone times in the car turned into my prayer time.
Time did fly, from that little girl that wondered off in the front yard just about giving me a heart-attack because she wanted to visit the neighbor behind us, to now blossoming into this beautiful young lady who is driving by herself. Only one more year of high school and she will moving into the next chapter of her story.
I’m super proud of her even though we’ve had our ups and downs. What Mom and daughter doesn’t? But we learn and grow from those moments. Olivia, may the Lord Bless you and Keep you for the rests of the days of your life. May you be His bride and seek Him diligently as you continue to mature. The Lord has great plans for you!
…Until I blog again
