As another long and busy days winds to a close, I’m struck by the parallels between physical and emotional changes. As one aspect of life changes so do other aspects. I’ve probably always suspected or maybe even known this but today as I’m especially tired I’m also especially emotional.
This is an emotional time anyway – our son is getting married. All of the feelings generated by such a momentous life occasion come to the surface. The range of emotions runs the gamut from very happy to very concerned but willing to give it all to God because He’s in charge anyway! THAT is a relief in all ways, for sure!
As I lay me down to sleep, I trust the Lord my soul to keep. Guard me through the warm safe night, wake me with Your morning’s light. Bless my beloveds and hold them close; grant me more minutes with each of those. With grateful heart and confident trust, thank You Lord for this life so blest. In and through Jesus’ precious name, Amen and amen.
