In three days, I will stand in a church and watch a beautiful young lady in a white dress walk down the aisle to meet the most handsome, most wonderful, most amazing young man any mother could call her son.
In three days, my son will marry his girlfriend of six years.
In three days, I will become a mother-in-law.
I am so happy for them.
I am so proud.
And yet, the tears fall.
Tears of joy for my son who is going to be the happiest boy in the world in three days.
Tears of sadness from my husband and I as we let go.
Would you join me in prayer for this couple?
(their engagement day)
Would you pray for God to pour out His Holy Spirit upon them as they begin their life together as husband and wife.
I ask for God to protect them as they are traveling on their honeymoon and bring them back home safely.
I ask God to bless them as they experience the good days and bad that come with marriage and work and life, and to help them keep their eyes on Him in every situation.
I ask for God to surround them with people who will strengthen them and encourage them, both in their marriage and in their walk with God.
And I ask God to help me trust Him with my children. They belong to Him anyway. I am so thankful that He gave me such a wonderful son (and daughter), and for giving me a wonderful daughter-in-law (and son-in-law to be). God has blessed me beyond measure. My cup runneth over.
So please be praying for us this Saturday morning at 10:00 a.m. and join me in covering this young couple in prayer.
Thank you for your prayers for Cole and Megan.
I will have wedding pictures next week!
