Hi friends!

I am writing because I need honest to goodness, godly counsel. My sweet daughter is getting married in four short days & I cannot stop weeping.

If you are waiting for an obvious clue to as why I can’t help you. I adore my future son in law, everyone loves each other. Their courtship was beautiful & God honoring. It’s exactly what I prayed for her  for 18 years.

I am sad that  I am done being ‘mommy’, I am sad this season is over. And in the most shameful part of my heart I hear these words: she won’t defer to you any more.

She is my baby, my only daughter & the first to marry.

Please understand, I am also full of joy! I finished well with her, my husband & I will no doubt be so thrilled to have so much time for just us!! My daughter is still my best girlfriend & I know that won’t change.

Its just this: why does my heart feel like it has a weight on it? Why do I feel grieved?

    Well you are having to see your baby leave it is a sad thing and I am sure I will cry when my time comes to see my girls married. But it is a time for joy just as you said. You might need to find a hobby or adventure to fill your time so you do not miss her to bad. Fine something else to pour your life into. Remember to let her go and become a wife and cleave to her husband! Shalom
