Hold on Tight Around the Curves!

My youngest son graduated from university this past week with his B.S. degree in programming.

I am, naturally, very proud of him, but along with the pride in his accomplishment I feel anxiety about the future.

I have concern about him finding a job and beginning to repay student loans, but more than that,  I feel fear of the unknown.

Our lives will change, now, as my son embarks on career and independence and, suddenly, so much is completely out of my hands.MP900442675

It is times like these, times of transition and growth, that challenge one’s faith and trust in God’s leading. It is only through constantly reminding myself that God is in control that I can find peace as I wait to see which direction his path for us  will take.

I feel as though I am traveling a mountain road of hairpin turns on a speeding motor bike. I can’t anticipate which way to lean into the curves until I am upon them and simply have to hold on tight.

In the days ahead I will try to remember to hold on tight to my faith in God’s love and to lean into the curves as I encounter them,  trusting that he will see me and mine safely to level ground once more.
