They have been friends for some time now, spent a lot of time together
as friends, then it grew into something more. She came to visit, they had more time together, he spent time with her family, she spent time with ours. They love the Lord and want Him to be a big part in this growing relationship. He is now courting this young lady, we are thrilled.
We have been counseling him in what the best would be for him, his future, his education and his relationship and have decided with the firm foundation we raised him with, it would be good for him to move on, get his education where he had originally wanted to go, get a little job and grow his relationship with this lovely girl.....What does all this mean?
He would be leaving home.
Yes, my baby boy will be leaving the state to pursue his dreams in music/teaching and writing film scores. This was not an easy decision mind you...Yes, my heart sinks just thinking about it. I am only torn because I would miss him being HERE...that would be the most difficult part that I would have to deal with... But, for the last couple of years he has expressed where he wanted to go to pursue his education. We have gone back and forth with it for the last year, and have come to the conclusion that he would be better off getting his education where it would best fit his needs...since we ourselves don't even know where we are going nor do we know how long until my husband finds a call. And, we didn't want to hold up our son's education...So we had a family counseling meeting...and made the final decision. I will spare you with the details of the final plan though.
He got his plane ticket and will be flying from our Cuckoos nest later next month.
And from there he will also be able to spend more time with his darling girlfriend.
Are they not the sweetest pair?
I will keep y'all posted on his endeavors and adventures when that time comes...
Please pray for him.
