I didn't know what that meant and had to have my Dad explain it to me. I love those old sayings because they are filled with such truth. So I am sharing that today. My daughter and Nik, had some engagement photos taken on Friday. I love them. I thought I would share a few. The first ones I will share were taken at our train station.
When I would bring a new baby home from the hospital, I would always wonder at how the new little person would just fit and we would wonder how it was we ever lived without that little person in our life. Now I have the joyful experience of sharing it again. God has brought such magic and blessing with each person one of our kids has married. I can't imagine life without them. I am thankful that God continues to expand our family.
The Poem by Robert Browning called Rabbi Ben Ezra
Grow old along with me!
The best is yet to be,
The last of life, for which the first was made:
Our times are in His hand
Who saith "A whole I planned,
Youth shows but half; trust God: see all, nor be afraid!''
I think it says it best. God has done such great things for me in spite of the many ways I have muddled it up.
I am thankful.
Thank you for coming along on my bragging post today.
