First One Out of the Nest

  I am a parent. I know how hard it is to see your little ones leave home. I don't care how many you have, every one of them is special and when they pull up and head out it leaves more than an empty spot in some room. Your heart goes with them Today one of my grandsons went off to college. How I remember how I felt when his mother went off to the same place. He is her second son and her first one went to college while living at home. But this was different.

  But aren't we proud of them and their character? We have the utmost confidence in his success at school but even more in his stability in the Lord. My, that means so much to a parent.

  I constantly think of 3 John 4. "I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth." Can you find a greater earthly blessing?
