“The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make His face shine on you and be gracious to you; the Lord turn His face toward you and give you peace.”
In this season of graduations from preschool to middle school and high school to college and even from spring to summer, perhaps it is a good time for us to simply exhale!
YOU DID IT! As a student you have completed a section of your race in this life. As a parent your kiddos are moving forward! Take time to reflect on old pictures, memories, victories and sorrows but remember to enjoy this moment of graduation. There will always be more mountains to climb but for now, look for an area in your life that you have seen the Lord grow YOU to a point you are now a successful graduate. It could be selfishness, anger, greed or other things you simply are not entangled with anymore, because you have graduated!
So, this weekend, “Memorial” Day weekend, consider how far you have really come. Pause, praise God for your personal growth and enjoy a weekend of no striving or stress. It is a time to celebrate what God has done in YOU.
You are graduating and all you need to hear this weekend is:
CONGRATULATIONS on GRADUATING!??
