Right up there with catching fireflies, swimming at dusk & watermelon parties with the neighbors. Thank God for sweet June afternoons!
By some miracle I'm adjusting to parenting an "adult" whilst enjoying innocent fun with the younger ones. One of you commented that no one warns us about the terrible 20's and I had to laugh because it's so true. One of you commented that having a child that is able to be independant is far better than one that will never be independant. I was humbled because it's so true.
My friends mom gave me a verse... If anyone sees his brother (or child) commit a sin that does not lead to death, he should pray and God will give him life. (1 John 5). She reminded me of when I was 18 and making wrong choices. She told me that these were the verses that she prayed for her daughter while that daughter was making wrong choices with me.
It wasn't all about us girls either. That mom grew spiritually during the time those two young girls were walking away from God, moving into a yucky apartment, hanging out with the wrong boys... and getting pregnant. Twenty years later, we are both following the Lord and married to Godly men.
I'm learning to pray God's promises
"Pray and God will give him (or her) Life"
