Having shared all of these areas where I celebrate what awaits her, we will still miss her profoundly in our home. This is the longest she will be out on her own, flying solo. It is another one of those grand steps toward adulthood. It is a journey filled with mixed emotions for parents. So, as her pastor I celebrate. As her father I celebrate....and as her dad, I find that little twinge of sadness as she loads her suitcase in the car.
Grace and Peace, Tom
