Here’s a guest post from my dear husband, Dana.

Where are you going my baby my own
Turn around and you’re two
Turn around and you’re four
Turn around and you’re a young girl
Going out of the door

Turn around
Turn around
Turn around and you’re a young girl
Going out of the door

Where are you going my little one, little one
Little dresses and petticoats, where are you now
Turn around and you’re tiny
Turn around and you’re grown
Turn around and you’re a young wife
With babes of your own

Turn around
Turn around
Turn around and you’re a young wife
With babes of your own

Where are you going my little one, little one
Where are you going my baby my own…

I’m crying today.

I’m crying over the minutes that piled into days that piled into years that swept by before I was paying any attention at all.

I’m crying over the marvelous grace of God, who works his ways while I’m not paying attention to mine.

I’m crying over the absurdly short period of time we are given to build into the lives our children before they are launched from our bow (Ps 127:3-5).

I’m crying in wonder, praise, and thanksgiving over the four marvelous men and women who have stepped out of my door.

I’m crying because God is great and I’m not.
