I often wonder of tomorrow, when I am older and time runs beyond me, when my bone and muscle move much slower than my heart leads, when I have more space in each day for thoughts to circle. Thoughts of how life will be for them and what life’s pressures feel like then.
I remind myself: they were created for that day ahead.
And it waits for them.
“Dad, do you think I can be . . .” You fill in the blank because my little girls ask about them all. My strong reply always echoes the same. “Yes, you sure can.”
They will meander close behind me and stray in the distance as my daughters grow, get older and begin to stand surer in life. There will be many instances where I have little control. I feel their strings pull a bit more as their day gets closer. The truth is I have very little control over their course in life. God has allowed my opportunity to reflect His glory and nature into their lives, but it is He alone who owns the days ahead.
