3 Sons are a heritage from the LORD,
children a reward from him.
4 Like arrows in the hands of a warrior
are sons born in one’s youth.
A floodgate of memories and emotions is about to break… this Saturday… as I watch my son wed his sweetheart, Lauren. I am in awe of the power of love and the speed of time. Lauren has shown him a love that has transformed him. Time has done its work as well, revealing Justin to be a man where a boy once stood.
My role this weekend will be to cry, to try to dance (without embarassing Janine) and to be a witness… a witness to the truths in Psalm 127 (sons really are a heritage from the Lord, …a reward, too.) Justin, I know this will be a stressful weekend. But relax, get to the church on time, try not to be nervous… and rejoice in the transformation that God has blessed you with. I know seeing it has been a blessing to me.
