Watching Five Kids Grow

Watching five kids grow up is so crazy.  I cannot believe my baby girl is fifteen.  I have been so blessed to watch my kids grow up to be beautiful inside and out.

I don’t always have these warm fuzzy feelings but tonight is different.  I am sitting on the floor outside of a dance studio watching my fifteen year old beauty dance.  I remember watching her at the age of four flutter like a butterfly across the stage in her ballet class.  She was always so excited as she turned with her arms all crazy up in the air.  Tonight she bends and moves in ways I never thought were possible.  Her arms are in perfect line as she leaps effortlessly through the air.  Her face shinning and making me smile inside and out.

I am reminded that my little girl is not little anymore. She is changing but growing into something greater than I could have ever imagined.

While our children are changing, our heavenly father remains the same, yesterday, today and forever!  In this world of uncertainty I am sure of one thing, He is amazing and  is with me no matter what I face in life. He is my rock, my constant life jacket in murky waters.

No matter what we are facing with our children; great seasons, tough seasons, or uncertain ones, God is in control.  He will give us the wisdom to know how to move within our season.  Our strength will come from Him as we press into His glory.
