prelude to an empty nest
the girl has gone for a youth leadership camp for a week. so it's just the 3 of us at home. i don't feel it so much as i'm at work most of the day but the girl's absence is beginning to affect the wife. she's stopped working the day the girl was born & has looked after her from day 1. so that reaction is understandable but i reminded the wife of the verse that the girl herself quoted the day the decision was made to study in singapore.
"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jer 29:11
life still has to go on but we trust the Lord will teach her & instruct her in the way that she should go. amen.
