- My 18-year-old son Taylor, will soon graduate from high school and leave home.
- I’ve never had a child leave home. How will Taylor handle it? More importantly how will Taylor’s parents survive? Will he survive without his mother picking up after him and doing his laundry?
- We’ll soon have another teenager in our home when Connor turns 13? Can I handle another teenage son or should I pray that God calls me to go sacrifice one of the three on the Mountains of Moriah like Abraham did with Isaac (kidding)? (Genesis 22)
- As mine and Lea’s parents continue to get older and need more help, how can we help them more without moving closer to them?
Amidst all these changes, I’m thankful there are some things in my family that I can count on never changing. The fact that some things don’t change make me feel much better. Things I can count on never changing in the Morgan family are…
- Our family will continue to put God first.
- We will continue to minister & serve wherever God takes us.
- I’ll continue to love Lea with all my heart.
- Lea will continue to purchase shoes
- I will be proud of my boys and continue to love them even when they make mistakes.
- We’ll continue to trust God to take care of our family.
I realize that change is everywhere. Children who were starting kindergarten yesterday are graduating from high school in a couple of weeks. Kids going off to college yesterday are now settling into the routine of a family. And those we love are slowly passing on to another world through death. You can’t count on anything to stay the same. More than anything I must remember that what doesn’t change is God. He’s still in control, and His love and His mercy remain the same. It’s only an unchanging God that remains. So now I remind myself that God will never fail. Now I feel better.
“The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases, His mercies never come to an end, they are new every morning…” Lamentations 3:22
