My son has grown before my eyes and I almost missed it!

Tonight I saw just how much my son is not little anymore. His second grade program was a huge success, despite almost not making it out of the court because of the icy roads. I looked through the eye of the camera and saw a boy five years older than he is. I got a quick glimpse of what he will be like in junior high and my heart almost skipped a beat.

Time is going so very fast and I'm afraid I will miss it all. I am so caught up in life and not the little moments. Perhaps God was speaking to me through the eye of that camera - slow down and enjoy your precious boy. He has never really been mine - he is His, wholly and completely. I was given the gift of raising him on this earth for greater things and God is telling me not to miss a moment - it is the moments that count the most!
