I graduated from college in May of this past year. What a relief! I don't have that haunting feeling of continual work to accomplish nagging at me and eating away at my inner-most being! This is one change for which I am thankful!
My younger daughter, Evangelyn, married her sweetheart, Joseph Bailey, in October. This has been a huge change, and one that has made our home very different and a little lonely-feeling. She married a young man whom she had dated for a few years. Thankfully, they are living in our general area so we get to see them quite often.
Joshua is growing up way to fast for this Mamma. When I look back and see his younger pictures, I am amazed at how time has flown. However, I am so very thankful for a little boy around to make things seem less lonely!
Our older daughter, Christianna, married her man, Matthew Clark, in January of this year. Although Christianna has been away from home for a while now since she went to college for five years in Cincinnati, she now lives in far-away Alabama with her new husband. Instead of two hours away, she is now ten hours away! Her visits are few and far between! This seems like a big change that is a little more difficult to swallow.
Changes! Have you had any in your life lately? How do you react to them? I am thankful for a Heavenly Father to go to with all my cares. I know He understands. "Casting all your care upon Him; for He careth for you" (I Peter 5:7).
