He rises before dawn.
He does a days work before most of our eyes flutter open to greet the day.
Other’s needs are always before his own.
There are no sick days.
Vacation days are far and few between.
He perseveres; With a strength and resolve I admire.
He’s not perfect.
No one is.
He loves His God.
He loves His Country.
He loves His family.
It’s his birthday today.
I praise God for the day he was born and the way he was raised.
He’s longing to slow down.
A desire to read and play on the floor with his grandchildren.
He longs for hikes and missions trips.
Who knows what this next circle around the sun will bring.
We do know that God is faithful and will walk with us through each step.
The LORD’S loving kindnesses indeed never cease,
For His compassions never fail. They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness.
My farmer has cows to feed, alley’s to scrape and book work to do.
He’s fighting a cold so he came back to the house to get warm and get a little more rest.
We’re going to celebrate him today.
