It's hard to believe how time flies. Today is Monday and I'm sure most of us woke up this morning already anxious for the weekend. It's frightening though when you have moments like I did today.
I was looking through old files and found a slideshow and a post from 2008 about my daughter, Elizabeth. That was 5 years ago, and she was only 15! In just a few weeks she'll be turning 20 and then in April she is going to Haiti for a mission trip. She is my baby but in the last few years she has grown up. Where did the time go? Have I spent all my days wishing for them to pass so the weekend would come and not enjoying each day with my children? Was I too busy to enjoy their lives? I don't think so. Of course I have regrets because I'm not perfect. However I do think I've spent quality time with my kids as they've grown up. Do I wish I could have spent more time or maybe time could have just stood still? Yes, of course!
Five years from now she'll probably be married. Maybe she'll have children of her own. Who knows? I continue to pray that God guides her feet along the path that he has chosen for her. She is a wonderful young lady and I know God has a calling on her life. Who knows where he'll take her?
