Isn't it just amazing how quickly kids can grow? It seems like yesterday that Carly was off to her first day of kindergarten... and there were pictures of she and Rachel over the years heading off for their first day! Now Carly and Michael... time sure does fly! And Carly... well... she drove herself to school today... another first in our household!
God has certainly blessed us, and we are just so thankful for all that He has done! We know that he will watch over these two as they begin the school year, and that He will stand right beside them along this journey. I was reminded of this verse this morning... familiar to many, but so true... there is a time for everything! Even going to school!!!!
1 There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under heaven:
2 a time to be born and a time to die,
a time to plant and a time to uproot,
3 a time to kill and a time to heal,
a time to tear down and a time to build,
4 a time to weep and a time to laugh,
a time to mourn and a time to dance,
5 a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
a time to embrace and a time to refrain,
6 a time to search and a time to give up,
a time to keep and a time to throw away,
7 a time to tear and a time to mend,
a time to be silent and a time to speak,
8 a time to love and a time to hate,
a time for war and a time for peace.
Ecc. 3: 1-8
