We Grow Together

My wife and I have had a couple of spectacular weeks with our girls (not that we don't have great times often.) Last week we thoroughly enjoyed a great vacation on the beach as we floated in the water, spent a lot of time laughing, ate good food, and had lots of ice cream. We've also had some in-depth conversations with them recently that have shown us some of what they think and given us a chance to speak blessing and truth over them. We are gaining greater insight into each other and understanding even more our individual personalities, strengths, and passions. We have even had our eyes opened to the truth of the things our girls struggle with-things that we didn't anticipate or predict, but can now help them work through. 

There is a richness to our relationships now (even as it continues to develop) that brings us great joy even as we struggle with the idea of how quickly they are growing up. God is doing a remarkable work in them and we are blessed enough to be part of their process of maturity. I will always look back on their early years with incredible fondness, but I am also looking forward to what the future holds as we all grow closer to Christ together.
