Five Minute Friday ~ OPPORTUNITY


start . . . 

A few moments ago, I slipped into their bedroom . . .
My three oldest daughters, including twins,
one to be married in less than 48 hours
all sound asleep.
This is the last night she will be home as a single woman.
The last time they will sleep together in that bedroomIt will be forever different . . .

  I sighed deeply  . . . knowing  opportunities I missed
and yet, so many  opportunities I was blessed with.
I thanked God for them and for my bride daughter.
For the Christian young man she is marrying.
And for being her mama.
For the many  special opportunities the twin girls shared,
secrets kept, late night talks, and memories made

And how God has protected them,
for true purity as she walks down the aisle
to meet her husband-to-be
and walk away together as one
And the God-filled  opportunities that have barely begun for them.

It’s a bittersweet time . . .
new  opportunites  for our family,
new beginnings,
and another new normal to find.

finish . . .

  1. That’s the blessing of opportunites: no matter how many we think we missed, there are always new ones looming around the corner. Enjoy your year of wedding 🙂
