At least that’s how it feels!
At this very MOMent I am sitting in my daughter’s dorm room, on her bed to be exact. I am experiencing a VERY surreal flash back in time to when I was sitting on my own dorm room bed. (Many, many years ago…yes, two many’s!)
Familiar sounds of voices down the hallway, the creek of a bathroom door opening exposing shower sound echoes and hair dryer whirring and the shuffling of flip flops. Neighboring female voices shouting, girls giggling, fast footsteps down the hallway.
This is absolutely mind bending.
The most interesting sensation of all…a memory of feeling so in love with one big handsome young man who I wondered, hoped and dreamed of spending my life with. My sweet Bill – whom I have now been married to for over 25 years. My dream come true.
I am here to visit my daughter and in the process, I am visiting memories of days gone by and I am being reminded anew of God’s loving care for me over a lifetime.
I have spent the last several minutes thanking God for His complete sovereignty over my life and recognizing that just as He watched over, loved and cared for me – He is doing the same for my “little girl” in her first year of college. I imagine the hopes and dreams of her Jesus filled heart as she nestles into her bed here each night.
I think God intended this MOMent for me, divinely lavishing me with His peaceful assurance that He is in control and has an amazing unseen, but God orchestrated, plan for my daughters life.
Joy and peace abounds! (Co-mingled with the sounds of college dorm room life… and that is a sweet symphony blend this mom heart is cherishing!)
