Happy Anniversary Braxton and Tucker! It’s hard to believe it’s been one year since my first born got married! We didn’t know it then but the fact that their one year anniversary is also Pentecost Sunday 🔥 makes me love this day even more! June 5, 2021, was one of the best days and hardest day at the same time. I was losing the one that made me a momma. I trusted God for the big things and surrendered my life to Him yet held on tightly to my baby girl. I’ve learned over the last year that checking in with her wasn’t necessary. My intent wasn’t to stifle her yet protect her and love her. So I hadn’t truly surrendered everything to the Lord. Over the last year I’ve asked God to fill the holes in my heart. I prayed the same for my sweet son-n-law and daughter. They too had holes in their hearts from losing dear family members.
A wise friend told me that her daughter at age 14 was traveling around the world on mission trips without her momma. She reminded how blessed she felt that God took care of her children when they were not with her and even when they were. It gave her peace. So after a year of wrestling with my need to take care of or check-in insesently I’ve finally let go. Each day I walk praising God for my children in Mississippi I don’t see often. I pray God’s promises over them daily. I know the Lord’s plan is for good for them and that no weapon formed against them will prosper. In fact it’s God’s design that they leave their families and become one. So on this Pentecost Sunday I am reminded that the power of the Holy Spirit is alive and well inside all of my children and family. I have so much to be thankful for- not fearful for.
Thank you God for the power to overcome all darkness always showing the light that cannot be dimmed. 🔥
Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. 2 Corinthians 3:17.
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. Romans 15:13
