It's difficult for me to believe. Really it is. How can it possibly be that my oldest grandchild will be graduating from high school this Friday evening?
Seems like it was just yesterday he was first born! Where do all the years go and oh my, how much does time fly by!
The last few weeks I've had the song from the Lion King, "Circle of Life", playing endlessly in the back of my mind. What with having a grandson graduating, new grand baby arriving in July, grandchildren having birthdays, precious loved ones going home to be with the Lord, seems hello's and goodbye's abound!
And even stranger phenomena happening, is that my daughter is already feeling the beginning twinges of an empty nest. Hold on here! Wait a minute! I'm not recovered from my OWN empty nest yet! How can it be that I am old enough to have a child with an empty nest? Is that possible? Well, apparently it is.
So, dear friends, here I sit, right in the middle of the circle, watching it all unfold around me. Well...OK...maybe not sitting in the middle...maybe more towards the end of the circle if I want to be realistic about it.
I know, circles have no end, right?
That truth comforts me.
~~I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.(James 10:10). Thank you Father, for blessed and abundant life you have given to me.~~
Congratulations Brock! We are so very proud of you!
We are blessed to have you as a grandson.
