"What He ordains for us each moment is what is most holy, best, and most divine for us." Jean-Pierre de Caussade

In the blink of an eye

Some 25 years ago when I moved my firstborn's baby mattress down a notch, I prayed, "Lord, enable me to meet each milestone of my child's life with grace." Tonight, I entered my baby girl's bedroom and told her goodnight for the last time as my "baby." Tomorrow night she will spend the night gathered with her bridesmaids and then Saturday, she will belong to another. How many times I have prayed with and over her in her bed -- that she would be a handmaiden of the Lord. God has been so faithful in answering both prayers. She has indeed become His maid servant and His grace in my life, though filled with tears only a mother could understand, has and always will be sufficient.

Tonight was no ordinary moment. It was nothing short of sacred and precious.
