Last day of Kindergarten | (Late) Sunday Scripture

Today is Logan's last day of Kindergarten.  And it will be his last day at the school at our church.  This year has been wonderful.  I couldn't have asked for a better teacher or for a better group of friends for him.  Now, we'll be onto our summer adventures.  Next year he'll be riding the bus.  When I first started my blog, I wrote an article called "Letting Go | Coming Back".  I still think about all of the things I talked about in that post.  And getting all of his stuff back from school has reminded me that he really does have his own little life that I sometimes know nothing about.  He is his own person.  He's an individual.  We are separating more and more every day.  He's becoming more independent. 
     But, I don't think that's why I'm sad today.  I'm just too darn sentimental.  I'm going to miss being at our tight-knit Christian school.  I'm going to be sad once I don't have those extra ties to the church.  I'm going to miss his teacher and his friends.  I'm nervous about the "unknown" next year.  But I know that I need to allow myself to trust God.  As with anything else, this can be a chance for us to grow.  It means I'm really going to have to step up to the plate and be more responsible for his spiritual growth.  I liked that at the school he hears about Jesus from more people than just me.  Obviously he's not going to get that from a public school, where they're not even allowed to pray.  For those of you who don't know, my husband and I don't exactly have the same beliefs. And my family, who are believers, live 1100 miles away.  So, that little extra "Jesus Time" helped me out.  I'm thankful that we've had at least this much time at the school and hopefully it was a good start for Logan.
Since I didn't do my "Sunday Scripture" yesterday, I was going to do one today.  I looked in my ESV Study Bible for verses that deal with "growth".  These are the two that I chose.

"Rather, speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ, from whom the whole body, joined and held together by every joint with which it is equipped, when each part is working properly, makes the body grow so that it builds itself up in love."--Ephesians 4:15-16(ESV)

"You therefore, beloved, knowing this beforehand, take care that you are not carried away with the error of lawless people and lose your own stability.  But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  To him be the glory both now and to the day of eternity.  Amen."--2 Peter 3:17-18(ESV)

The more I read that last one, the more perfect I think it is for our new journey!

What are the things in your life right now that you need to give up to God and about which you need to just trust Him?
