I see a lot of people

in the world

and most of them

make me smile,

but you’re different.

You make

my heart smile!

“…for the Lord sees not as man sees; man looks on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart.” 1Sam16:7

 

For my daughter I sensed that my release of her would be a new “different.” My expectations of the circumstances were different; my preparation would be different. I sensed the difference, but wondered what this new difference would feel like.

And where would God be?

This weekend I found the answer (to both) in the

JOY

that I witnessed

in the difference in her, my darling daughter!

And just how much of Him there already is

reflected in this heart of hers,

which is becoming whole.

Forty days before an embryo is formed, a heavenly voice calls out—so and so is to marry such and such,” says the Talmud. This has been orchestrated from before you were born. Your souls are partners, matching halves of a single whole. The Talmud describes the search for a spouse as looking for that “lost part” of yourself.    -a parable

The Joy of seeing

(how beautiful it is)

that God has indeed made

the half to her completeness.

And what great joy is felt in this new “difference”

as my heart smiles for the two of them

as they prepare to have Him always united with thee.

“A cord of three strands is not easily broken.”  Ecclesiastes 4:12

  1. Oh mother dearest how special you continue to make me feel! The JOY that you describe is exactly what I feel as well. Thank you for making this preparation so carefree and filled with love but most importantly thank you for instilling in me the importance of letting God be at the center of it all. You’re the one who showed us kids how important it was to wait for someone who would love our souls, someone who God intended for us to love, and when we found that person to still keep our father first. That’s why this has been so JOYOUS!!! Thank you mother for the continued blessings and for such a special shower. The outpouring of love in that room was something I will cherish for a lifetime. I’m still bubbling and giggling from all the fond memories made in one afternoon. I felt like a princess and cannot thank you enough xoxoox
