We prepare our children their whole lives for the moment when they will strike out on their own; for when they spread their wings and test their own skill and strength. As hard as it is to let them go, it is a moment to celebrate. It is the celebration of not only all we as parents have sown in the hearts and minds of our children; it is the unveiling of a life created and designed by God for His glory. So, in admiration of all God has done, we open our arms and let them go knowing that they were only ours to hold…. for a while.
This song is dedicated to our son Nathanael and to all the parents who have opened their arms to let their children go.
