Tonight is is Senior night for my youngest, y’all. How did this even happen? I blinked.
My Luke is fully loaded and completely equipped with everything he needs as long as he keeps Christ highest in his heart. We’ve learned to trust God Most High to bring in the right people, show him the right places, and deliver in His perfect timing.
But, this is not easy for a momma.
I keep reminding myself he is a strong, independent thinker. A mix of logic, reason, and ‘get-after-it’. He is wound a little tighter than most. Man – does he ever keep me on my toes.
His senior year is/has been one of letting go, when motherhood becomes a complicated mixture of pushing him forward and holding him back. Every day I cry a few tears as I get used to the idea of him moving on from our home, but at the same time, I am so excited for him to embrace this next phase of life. Because every time I’ve asked God to “just keep him here at this age, this age is the best!” God has revealed a new place in my sons where He takes them to a new level of life with new growth, and new joys … new planes – places ever-better. A new place of “this age is the best”.
I am in your corner, Luke Lewis, your loudest cheerleader, and proudest Mother. I’m right here. Always. Watching you in wonder, supporting plans for your tomorrows, and praising our Maker for the gift of you.
I love you, son.
“There is hope for your future,” says the Lord. “Your children will come again to their own land.”
Jeremiah 31:17 NLT
Love them hard.
