Wait…

I watch you blossom
I watch you grow
In amazement at all you can do and all you attempt—
What kind of woman will you become?

I am so blessed with your laughter
I am so blessed with your smile
Thankful for all the happiness you have in life—
What does this world hold for you?

I’m so thankful for your health
I’m so thankful for your aptitude
Daily grateful prayers to the Father hardly seem enough—
What have I done to deserve such perfection?

I fear for your future
I fear any potential harm
Life on a deserted island becomes more desirable with each passing newscast—
What can I do to protect you from the damage others can do?

I await your future
I await all that is yet to come
You have so much to offer, so much promise—
What else can I do but pray, have faith, and …

Wait?

Thank you, dear Lord, for the blessings you have given me
For the perfection you have granted to my girls
And the abundance of love you have so willingly offered.

Colossians 3:15
And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also ye are called in one body; and be ye THANKFUL.
