“But forget all that—it is nothing compared to what I am going to do.
For I am about to do something new.
See, I have already begun! Do you not see it?” Isaiah 43:18-19
My dad used to say, ”I want to put BRICK on your head so you will stop growing.”
THAT is a statement ONLY understood by someone WAIST DEEP in a life FILLED with children.
A life SUBMERGED in flag football, ballet, band-aids, mac-n-cheese, chapter books, trampolines, clubhouses, and GROWTH.
It can ONLY be understood by a parent as they see their kids MORPH before their eyes.
It is sometimes PHYSICALLY painful for me to think of the future.
I want it to STOP. NOW.
I want to put the “brick” on my childrens head.
I want them to STOP.
just like my parents were forced to do….
I am FORCED to watch as my babies change.
I am FORCED to come to terms….
I cannot stop this force.
It is predetermined and ancient.
As long as there have been children…I am sure that their parents have been thru this.
But…it is REAL and it is HAPPENING.
So…I am TRYING to come to terms with it.
I know that GOD has a plan….no matter how much I want to THINK I am in control. I am not.
Before shot of my baby. She went to the dentist to get her SPACER removed, that she had put in bcs she fell and knocked out her front tooth. She has had it in for 2 years…to keep the teeth in place till the big teeth started coming in.
After shot: Her OLD “teeth” gone…and the NEW TEETH revealed underneath.
Morphing in front of my eyes.
The TRUTH cannot be denied.
It is happening.
