Reviewing and gathering this morning for upcoming book projects and Bible Studies. Little did I know that the words penned on April 26, 2008 would resonate with such intensity today, July 24, 2013…five years later. I need these words, again, as I face an “emptier” nest. Brooke has married the man of her dreams, and therefore has truly left the nest (even though I still have boxes in storage with her name on them), Candace Rose is a bona fide, professional travel writer who keeps us guessing month-to-month as to her whereabouts (smile), and Grant has finished his college career and is embarking on his new real estate agent adventure. So, even though one 6’5″ bird still somewhat resides in our upstairs nest, the nest has once again changed. Can anyone relate? In honor of my “emptier” nest, I am reposting this today. I need some encouragement. So much has changed in five years. PLEASE let me know how you handled your “emptier” nest!
