My daughter who just turned 7 was proud to show what she wrote on the note app on her iPod. It was cute, it was sweet and I am 100 percent sure that it made the Lord smile.
Tonight, I watched my 10 year old cheer two basketball games. While that was happening my 7 year old had soccer practice. In between the two events, I had a parent stop me and say thank you for coaching her kids and that they really love having me. As I was standing there watching the end of the second game, I started to think…How did I end up here? Did I really leave Guam and all of that to be at a Prep school. Soon after I look and notice my 7 year old now in the athletic complex talking to her sister and the other cheerleaders. She then goes down and hangs out with the 8th graders. In that moment, I realize that yes I am here and yes I get to see my girls everyday and yes I am making a difference in the lives of the next generation of Christians. I didn’t expect to be here BUT I’m glad that I am. Have a good night. God bless you all -PJSLB
Lord, as I sit in between my two daughters as they sleep peacefully this night, I pray lord for their health. I pray lord for wonderful experiences that will strengthen their faith and trust in you. I pray that they will remember you in time when the road is not so straight. I pray for K as she will be in the schools Nativity play. I pray for N as she is getting better and catching up on school work. I pray for J as you walk with her on college. I pray for my wife and thank you for the rock she is in my life.
I pray lord for all those who are looking for you. I pray for an experience they will never forget. I pray for family, friends, and readers that are suffer lord. Whatever that suffering is, please help them.
Finally, I pray for myself. I pray for knowledge and compassion. I pray to never boast. I pray to be a mirror of your love.
In Jesus Name, Amen
