Monday Musings 28/11/11
Once and a while, as a pastor, you get an opportunity to do something that takes on special significance. Sunday was one of those days as I had the privilege of dedicating Oliver, a five month old blonde bundle of contentment.
I have watched Olie’s mom grow from a little girl into a beautiful lady. She fell in love with a young man in university, they decided to marry and ask if I would perform the ceremony. Today they have two beautiful children and yesterday, we stood on the platform of their home church and dedicated their second born.
It would be easy to use this occasion to remind myself that I am getting older – watching someone grow up, get married and become a mother. However, I prefer to think of the privilege that is mine to watch someone grow up and have them give me the honor of participating in significant milestones along their journey.
So, Phil and Jordan, thank you for including me in your journey. Thank you for making Christ the center of your lives, your home and your family. God has given you two wonderful gifts to cherish and take care of. As you watch them grow up take time to enjoy the many moments that will become lifetime memories.
Until next Monday…
