Five Minute Friday...The Song of my Heart...

My favorite time of the week...Five Minute Friday! Since my internet has been working in five minute spurts today, I should have just enough time to complete this post! Today's word is....
SONG...


This week there has been a sweet song playing over and over again...
The sounds of laughter....the sounds of joy...the sounds of togetherness...
There is the married couple...newly graduated from college...planning their future...
There is the engaged daughter talking on the phone with her fiance...
And there is the son planning for his summer job and next semester at a new school.
My empty nest is full for a short time and my heart is soaking it all in.
My dishwasher is run at least once a day...my washing machine is getting a work out...
All music to my ears...those are the sounds of family!
I know in a  month our home will once again be an empty nest...
But this song in my heart will play on...
My heart is content...my heart is in love with my Savior...
My heart is crazy about my husband...my heart is proud of my children...

This pretty much sums us all up!

Five Minute Friday...Comfort in Comfort...

After taking a few weeks off, I am back and of course I need to jump in on Five Minute Friday! One word, five minutes, no editing. This week has been a week of reflection for me, our oldest daughter and her husband are graduating on Saturday. Time truly does seem to fly by! I feel like it was just yesterday this daughter of ours was born. So today's word has caused me to reflect on a time in her life, today's word is COMFORT.

Comfort, Texas isn't a big town. It's nestled in the hill country of Texas, just north of San Antonio. There isn't a mall there, unless of course you count the antique mall. This town will always hold a special place in my heart and the heart of my two daughters. You see there is a small Bible school located just outside Comfort. This school is called His Hill Bible School. Both Ashley and Abby attended there for one year right out of high school. The year was tough, there was homesickness, but there was also growth. The staff there are amazing, they take these kids and make them family. It is a small school, so it is easy to get to know everybody on staff.

I love that this school is located near Comfort, Texas. As a parent it was hard to drive over 20 hours south and leave your daughter there. However, we were "Comforted" by the fact that this is where God wanted them. They were surrounded by people who cared about them and prayed for them even before they arrived on campus.


This amazing place helped shaped each of our daughters into the amazing women of God they are today. They grew in their faith and made it their own. I love watching the way God is working in them. As our oldest daughter and her husband graduate and prepare to move 31 hours away, I am comforted once again that they will be exactly where God wants them to be. They may not be moving to Comfort, Texas, but they are following God's will. That gives me joy and excitement and comfort that God is the one watching over them. Just as He has been doing from day one!


Oh and congratulations on graduating  Ashley and Larry!!! I am so proud of both of you!!!!
