Today is Hayden's first day of Kindergarten! 
So, I hope you will all indulge me as I write the obligatory 'First Day of School' post. 
I mean, really? 
Who can resist all of the cute little Kindergartners walking into school with their new backpacks, and their new lunch boxes, and their new school supplies. It's utterly adorable on all accounts!
Many have asked, "So... how are you holding up? You doing okay?"
I haven't quite figured out how I am feeling at the moment, honestly. 
I haven't cried yet... so that must be a good sign...right?! 
I know that Hayden will be fine. He is loyal and charismatic- so making friends will come easy for him. He is a natural leader- so that will put his teacher at ease. He is too much like his father in that he is incredibly charming- so his teacher will adore him {in fact, I'm certain she already does}. He is smart- so his school work should not overwhelm him. He is tall and athletic- so He won't be picked on or bullied. He is kind and compassionate and eager to learn. 
So truthfully, I can confidently say that I am not worried about him.
He has been prayed over and released into God's strong, capable hands.
I read the following devotional from Jesus Calling, written by Sarah Young, the other morning. 
It put everything into perspective for me and I would like to share it with you.
"ENTRUST YOUR LOVED ONES TO ME; release them into My protective care. They are much safer with Me than in your clinging hands. If you let a loved one become an idol in your heart, you endanger that one- as well as yourself. Remember the extreme measures I used with Abraham and Isaac. I took Isaac to the very point of death to free Abraham from son-worship. Both Abraham and Isaac suffered terribly because of the father's undisciplined emotions. I detest idolatry, even in the form of parental love.
When you release loved ones to Me, you are free to cling to My hand. As you entrust others into My care, I am free to shower blessings on them. My Presence will go with them wherever they go, and I will give them rest. This same Presence stays with you, as you relax and place your trust in Me. Watch to see what I will do."

This has been the key to my well-being. Releasing Hayden into God's loving hands. After all, who could better take care of my little one than the Creator Himself? It has been my prayer from the moment Hayden was born, that he would be instrumental in bringing God great glory. How possible would this be, if I were to cling tightly to him, when I was created to cling tightly to Jesus? 
This will be a first of many new school years. 
Many new opportunities and possibilities await this young one. 
His future is bright and we expect to see great things from him!
We love you, Hayden!
Mommy and Daddy are very proud of you!
