Having recently been accused of being a proud father, I simply have to plead ‘guilty’! You see, last weekend I had the distinct privilege of walking my youngest daughter, Monica, down the long aisle to be united in holy matrimony to Jon Feierabend. In doing so, I found myself flooded with the most intense emotions.
Love. Hope. Anxiety. Joy.
I had been praying for Jon for years, although I didn’t know his name until recently. Even before Monica was born, I began asking God to provide the perfect spouse for our perfect little baby. It isn’t every day that I get to see the answer to my prayers walk through the door on two legs, but you can understand how thrilled I was when I finally met Jon.
Right now, as Monica, Jon and I see some of our biggest dreams come true, I’m drawn to ponder the future. Are there new dreams I need to pursue? Old dreams I could revive? Today’s joy inspires me with renewed hope for many tomorrows.
What about you? Is there a big dream stirring deep within your soul? Don’t let it die the bitter death of neglect.
I stand with you in eager anticipation of what God has in store for your future.
