Yesterday afternoon, I saw a young man take one of his many steps toward independence and adulthood. As the tassle was moved from one side of the mortarboard to the other, a giant leap was made. High school was ended.
Nineteen years ago, I heard the most remarkable news: we were going to have a baby! Our first, and the child of our prayers, David has been such an amazing blessing to our lives since that first moment when we learned of his presence in my womb.
As he takes these next strides into his adult life, it is time for Mom and Dad to take some steps back. But the prayers will always be there, son. May God go with you, lead you, and be your ever-present Source.
