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,
and another new normal to find.
