Papa’s little girl, gone to Texas

Since my granddaughter was born a little over four years ago and has lived within a 20 mile range of home, I’ve often posted “the joys of grandparenting” at this site.  But tonight, I feel the sorrow of grandparenting as Payton Elizabeth will tomorrow move away, becoming a Texan (like her dear little Mom).

I don’t begrudge her that at all, knowing that life and circumstances interplay with God’s design.  But still, I’m a little sad for me (and Sarah) as we face a change in our routines.

At the end of the day, we know all things work together for those who know God, so we trust and we’re strangely content in the midst of this sorrow.  Our lives are in God’s hands–Why complain?
