Words cannot express..

Friday, September 03, 2010

Words cannot express the deep feelings a mother feels when dropping off her teen at college for the first time. It is like leaving a part of you... and an overwhelming sense of pride when thinking back how God has worked through their lives through the years to come to this point!! May God work in our children's lives to grow to love Him more and more!!

Thanks to my friends who have prayed for me the past two weeks!! (((hugs)))

    Hugs, Margie!! It is sure a "different" kind of feeling. But like you said, they are God's gift to us to raise and nurture and now they will go forward and make their own way with Him!!

    I know how you feel. I felt like was leaving part of myself in that dorm room when we left our oldest daughter at college 4 years ago. Now she is married and lives 14 hours away and is expecting our first grandchild in 2 weeks (yes, we will be making the trip).

    My daughters didn't go away to college, but went close to home. So I didn't go through that. It must be hard. I sort of understand since my girls both got married and moved out very close together. We have had an empty nest for 9 years now. I love seeing how God is working in my grown children and grandchildren. When your kids move it's an emotional time of both sadness because you miss them yet being proud of them. Eventually you get used to the new season of your life. May God bless you with His grace during this tough season.

    When I think about my son going to college.....I panic. He wants to attend PCC, which is 7-8 hours away. It might as well be on the other side of the earth. I know I will be proud though. I am happy for you. I'm sure they are fine young men. I hope you are doing better after your fall. I hated to read about that, and also your brother-in-law. Titusville is near to wear we live. I wish you well and wonderful blessings from God as your children grow in the Lord and finish their educations.

    I have loved watching my boys just blossom in their spiritual growth throughout their college experience! My youngest flew into Pensacola tonight (he is a junior) but we chatted at each layover and now after he got into his room! It helps so much to talk to them a lot throughout the week! Hugs to you as you go through these times too!!! Have a wonderful week!!

    I know how you feel. My daughter and son both joined the military and it was amazing the feeling when they left the house. And how god worked through their lives
