Now, before you get too upset, you must realize these were happy tears. The woman who sang special music that evening was a mother of four little boys. The song she sang held a lot of meaning for her. The song was written from the perspective of a mother who was praying for some unknown little girl. You see, that girl would one day capture her son’s heart and he would marry her.
|B and her Grandma Doner|
The reason my mother was crying? It was the day her very first grandchild was born; a little girl.
I was blessed to realize right from day one how important it is to pray for our children and the ones they will marry. And I have done so. I have had my own opinions over the years of who I think would be good options, but I have kept those opinions mostly to myself.
Today that little girl of mine has made her choice and I think she has chosen well. I had always promised that I would not force my opinions on her about her wedding, when the day should come. It will be her wedding and it is her special day with her groom. However, I will make one request. This song WILL be sung as a testament to God’s faithfulness in providing for my precious little girl.
My mom won’t be able to be at her granddaughter’s wedding or any of her other grandchildren's weddings. She passed away when B was barely a year old. However her memory will be there along with the memory of my daughter’s birth and the memory of songs sung.
For all you parents listen to the words of the song - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ah_uGgDDT-c You will be challenged to pray for your kids and their future spouses.
Congratulations BB and EB
