As I watched my boys from our side yard learn to maneuver this large piece of machinery I caught a lump in my throat.
They are becoming men. No longer am I tripping over cars, legos and the latest action figure.
When did this happen? I mean I was there and I have been watching.
But today as I admired I got a glimpse. Of a man.
Austin is almost as tall as Dad.
Who cries watching their son mow a field?
And this momma prayed.
Prayed that I could Love them.
That I could be strong and courageous~
so that they would be.
That I could be thankful for
ALL of the moments in life.
Finally learn to be content- with myself,
with all I have.......to trust only in my God.
So they would learn to be thankful - everyday...... and learn
To be content.
That they would understand trust.
God, help me.
Teach me everyday.
Because if I don't go after it
and possess it,
How can I possibly
teach it to them?
To these men in training who are entrusted to me.
Oh, to live that way!
Help me, God!
(my girl too, but that is another blog!)
