Standing At Seven
We are standing at the threshold, standing at seven with our Shannon Ava Jean. What we have walked through has been of another world and we are about to embark on a brand new journey. So much has changed in such a short time. She has moved into her own room, no longer sharing in the baby world of her little sisters. She has lost her first tooth and now her second in quick succession. Her favourite colour is purple instead of pink. It will not be long now until she is reading books on her own, no longer needing me to tell her what everything says. Seven is the number of perfection, of completion and I can sense it. What comes next will bring great joy, great tension, great turmoil, great expectations.
“The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.”
– Deuteronomy 31.8
