The years have passed quickly. Learning to walk and talk. Learning to ride a bicycle. The first day of school. Soccer leagues. Little League baseball. Fishing. Playing in the stream. Canoeing at the lake. Family vacations. Maine. Thousand Islands, New York. High school soccer. Basketball. Playing games.
Great memories. A strong foundation in the Lord. A foundation that is ready to be built upon. As we observe. Pray. And perhaps, occasionally, have an opportunity to instruct and encourage. But his life is his to build. Not his, but the Lord’s. He is the steward. God is the architect. He is the builder. How faithfully will he follow the blueprints?
My wife and I are entering a new phase of parenthood with our oldest child. We have new lessons to learn. We thank God for the opportunity. We thank God for a son who has brought us great joy and blessings.
