Proverbs 22:6 NIV
This weekend Ethan is traveling almost 4 hours away to a Christian Conference and I am a mess. I have prayed for days for guidance in whether we should allow him to go or not. Then all the signs pointed to "Mama it is time to let him grow" (go).
God is so good about giving us those signs, those nudges. I, on the other hand, am not always good about heeding to His nudges.
I am one of those over protective Mama's, I have taken heat for that, but isn't that my job? I know God holds our children in His loving care and protection. I know that it is also my job to allow our children to grow, to blossom into the people they are to become, however, this is tough stuff. Isn't this the most important thing I will ever do, is raise these precious gifts?
