Proverbs 24:3-4

By wisdom a house is built, and by understanding it is established; by knowledge the rooms are filled with all precious and pleasant riches.

Falling Leaves and Falling Bibby's

Just like leaves falling off the trees,
so are the minutes from the day,
the days from the months,
and the months from the years.
Eric brought to my attention last night,
"You know Luke will be 8 in January and then 9 the next year. Half of his life with us will be over.... He'll be 18 and out the door."
It's hard to imagine and harder for my heart to comprehend.
And yet... today I looked through pictures from 2009.
How small they looked! My babies! Just two years ago they were all babies!!
Time stands still on the days when my TO DO list is longer than I am tall.
Time flies when I look at pictures from last year and see round faces
that have now been replaced with jutting chins.
So just like the trees who are losing their leaves,
Spring will bring new buds and new beginnings,
and so it is the same with my little Bibby buds!
New adventures are ahead!
