How will I know?

How will I know when labor has started? How will I know when she needs to be fed? How will I know when she's ready to take the training wheels off? How will I know how to teach her that she needs a Savior? How will I know if she's old enough to see that movie? How will I know that it's not just a "crush"? How will I know that he's the right man for her? How will I know it's the perfect dress?

How will I know?
How will I know how to let her go?

God. Only Him. What a humbling thing to see your children walk in the goodness of God. That's how I know. Because of Him.

"I have no greater joy than to know that my children are walking in the truth." 3 John 1:4
