As I rubbed sunscreen on the sweet little freckled nose I was struck with how perfect this moment by the pool was.
As I watched my little girls play with Barbies by the pool I was happy & a little sad at the same time.
Have you ever had such a perfect moment that it made you sad because you hated to see it end?
I feel a tug on my heart as I think about how quickly time is passing with my girls.
Lately I’ve seen several memes & posts about having only 18 summers with our kids.
When you think about it that way, our time to guide & direct & love them while they are under our roof is so very short.
According to that train of thought, I only have 3 summers left with Emma.
I have 13 summers left with the twins.
That day by the pool I thought about the prayer I have prayed for Emma & the twins over the years.
I have prayed from the moment I knew I was pregnant that my children that they would be blessed with a spouse that loves the Lord first & loves them like crazy.
I pray for my future son in laws as well.
I pray they are safe.
I pray they are being raised well.
I pray they are learning how to be a Godly husband & father.
I pray that they know Jesus in an intimate way.
I pray these same prayers for my girls.
I pray that my girls would meet their spouses at just the right time.
I pray they would remain pure for each other.
I am so thankful that the Lord hears my prayers.
I am so thankful He loves my girls even more than I do.
I am so thankful He has even better plans for them than I do.
Here’s to more wonderful days by the pool & the comfort that comes from knowing my Lord hears this mama’s heart.
You are loved.
