How can I grasp onto time? How can I grasp the moments as they pass, to prolong those happy, wonderful, fleeting moments?
That's the truth of it.
There are precious few things we can grasp. Tiny hands grow into bigger hands, and soon those hands are holding a steering wheel, or a cell phone, or even someday, a boy's hand.
All we can do is appreciate each moment, enjoy it while we have it, and perhaps, if we're able, write it down for future memory.
Heavenly Father, help me to grasp the gravity of the moments I have with my girls while they're still in my care. In my home. Help me to grasp their hands and help turn their hearts towards Yours. I love you, and I thank you for the privilege of raising Your daughters in a home that loves and serves You. Make me equal to the task. Help me to overlook my own shortcomings and focus on You. Help me to grasp Your love for me, so that I can communicate that same Love to them. Amen.
