Flying as an Eagle
This morning I'm walking down memory lane. Classes at the university start tomorrow and our family is in transition. Change. Change is something that's sometimes necessary. It's a natural part of an emotionally healthy life, but that doesn't mean it's easy on a mother's heart. I've always believed that my task as a mother is to help my children grow roots and wings. I've told them that helping them grow roots has been the easy part. Nurturing and homemaking comes easily. But the growing wings part is 'oh so hard' for a mother's heart. But the wings are growing strong and it is now time for flying. And flying it will be, with mom's and dad's blessing.
This picture is of the children when they were very young. I believe Rylan is about eight months old in this picture and Brandon is four years old. The week before the photo appointment I was busy at my sewing machine, making the boys matching sailor outfits with crisp white collars and cuffs trimmed with braid. What a cute pair they made!
"For thus saith the LORD; Behold, he shall fly as an eagle, and shall spread his wings. . ."
God's blessings, dear one. . .
