My heart aches

My heart is aches .. . . . . .

She grew up too fast - her father and I envisioned her not leaving our brood until she was given in marriage to her future husband, we longed for more time to strengthen the bonds between us . . to better prepare her for life

but alas,

the world beckoned and she flew with her wings spread, ready to test if the grass is greener on the other side of the fence.

She left today for Nevada to live with her grandparents. .  to experience the world. . . the one we've tried to protect and shelter her from.

As she ventures out into the world, we pray that we gave her a strong foundation to stand upon, that we raised her to love the Lord, that she'll make wise choices, and that she'll find whatever she's been missing while living under our care.

She may have severed herself from our authority, but she won't be severed from our thoughts and prayers

I know that today was a hard day for you. I hope she finds what she's looking for, and you find your balance in the new structure of your household.
