Brian and I were chaperons for the dance, and had fun watching all the kids dressed up and excited about the evening. We were "stationed" at the end of a hallway, to make sure kids didn't go where they weren't supposed to, which meant we didn't get to "see" the dance. However, Beauty and the Beau made several trips out to visit with us. So we didn't feel totally out of it. *wink* As we sat, Brian and I reminisced the dances we went to years ago, and it was fun strolling down memory lane. Who woulda thunk - when we were freshmen in college, dancing at the Halloween party (when I told him I was never going to get married!)- that 23 years later we'd be chaperoning a dance for our princess. Twenty-three years ago my life was so different! I didn't know Jesus. I was on a path which was all about me. What I wanted. What I cared about. What would make me happy. Me, myself, and I. They were the three people I loved most. Who woulda thunk dating Brian and consequently meeting Jesus would have changed my life so completely? I never thought of that option. But I'm so glad GOD did! I have no idea what the next 23 years hold for Beauty and the Beau. But GOD does. And I've learned I can trust HIM! What has God done in your life - which you never would have thought could happen?
