Recently, I’ve been so busy “Celebrating the Adventure of Faith and Family Life” (this website’s tagline) that I haven’t had sufficient time to blog about it!
You see, my second oldest daughter, Angel, will be joined in holy matrimony on July 5th, 2017, to Scott Gerald Ewin; and I am one HAPPY MOMMA!
I am beside myself with giddiness and laughter, and an almost illegal level of euphoria. You’d think I was planning my own wedding!
My precious little baby girl, my “Angel Eyes,” is young and in love. She will turn 20-years-old this month; just a few weeks before she says “I Do,” and I could not be happier.
She and Scott met in Bible School. Scott fit right in with the family. He fell in love with our Angel and we fell in love with him . . . and the rest is history.
Angel’s job is “full-time nursing student” and my job is full-time wedding coordinator.
I take care of everything regarding her wedding: the save the dates, the wedding invitations, the mailing addresses, cataloging RSVP’s, organizing the bridesmaids attire, coordinating surprise bridal showers (Shh!), and on and on the list goes.
My life hasn’t been calm or restful for the past two months; and with all the pre-wedding events slated before their Big Day, I don’t think that’s going to change much.
It seems that every other day there’s another wedding related activity to conquer and check off of my “to do” list; but I wouldn’t trade a second of it for anything in the world. It’s really the best kind of busyness there is!
This season of motherhood may be filled with many “to do’s” and deadlines, but it is oh so joyous and deeply gratifying.
Some one recently commented that my children are growing-up and my home is emptying out; but the truth is that it’s not getting emptier, it’s getting fuller.
My adult kids are finding mates and (Lord willing) will eventually have children; and even now, when they bring over their spouse, fiance and significant others, my home feels like it’s bursting from the seams. Yes! I love the additions and the swelling of our family.
There are many seasons of a mom’s life.
I thank my Heavenly Father that this is a season of gladness and rejoicing. A season of growing as a family and of gaining a son. A time to celebrate the oneness that God calls a husband and wife to. A time where the covenant of marriage will once again demonstrate the eternal covenant relationship between Christ and his church (Ephesians 5:25-32).
For this, I give thanks.
