Greetings Dear Reader,
Thirty one years ago today my life changed forever. I had just arrived at work when I received a call that my firstborn was ready to be born. I drove from South Atlanta to North Atlanta so quickly that there was surprise when I arrived at the hospital.
I will not likely get to see my Son today but I dedicate this time and space to him. I love him deeply and fiercely. I have watched him navigate pain and loss with honor and commitment. He is a good father and loyal friend. He vocation is one that directly helps those in need.
On his advent anniversary I feel so privileged to be his father. I benefit from his presence in my life and realize what a blessing he is. It is in this man, this friend; I see the potential of his generation. His mind and heart have so much promise. He is the kind of man we should all aspire to be.
I love you Son. Happy Birthday.
Wishing you joy in the journey,
Mat 13:52 So Jesus said to them, "That is why every writer who has become a disciple of Christ’s rule of the universe is like a home owner. He liberally hands out new and old things from his great treasure store.”
