Life is certainly a roller coaster and can blast us with some very hurtful things. We begin to dwell on them, convincing ourselves that we are the only ones suffering, We start preparations for a pity party we will throw. We start speaking only the negative in our lives and take the great for granted.
Sometimes if we take just a minute to see what has been going on while we have been pouting, we realize that it was us who took our eyes of what is important, it did not go anywhere.
18 years ago, my 2nd son was born. He has quietly been making his way to his goals and I have been keeping track and cheering him on. Today as I celebrate his graduation from High School, I am reminded of what has been going on behind the scenes. Turns out it is pretty good! Congratulation to my 2 time champion bull rider, who is living the dream he asked God to get to live many years ago. Today he is a professional bull rider heading to the big show- the ” Danged Old Rodeo” as Garth would say.
It is amazing how faithful God is to us-even through our tantrums.
I am mega- proud of you Jesse, and who you put first in your life. I love you son.
