There are two things that come to my mind as I write this. The first is that people often say you marry your dad. And in so many ways, I am seeing that this is true for me. Ken loves all things electronic and he seems to have been born with a camera in his hand. My dad loved Ken so much. It was such a blessing to me that my parents really embraced him and made him a part of our family. So I suppose I can see how that saying might be true for me. The second thing that is on my heart, is the entire photography thing. Just today Gwen posted an instagram Iphone photo of my granddaughter Lia, with a really big and expensive digital camera pressed to her face, taking pictures. I am convinced that Yahweh is really showing me something in all of this. There is meaning and value in taking photos and preserving (think scrapbooking) our life experiences. And I believe that it is a part of the plan and destiny for my family. I am so blessed to be able to look at my children and grandchildren and know that these traits of my father are living on.
Thank you Yahweh for reminding me about my dad and bringing me to an increased revelation of your plan and destiny for me. Thank you so much for the ways you have brought me to this time and place of understanding in a better way, more about my dad. Jesus you have sown seeds into my life and into my children and grandchildren. Holy Spirit, thank you for watering and nurturing those deep things in us. Yahweh, help all that read this blog, to see what you have sown into their generations. Bring greater revelation that gives hope, joy and peace for today. Amen
PS - Final installment (for now) about my dad tomorrow - on the 100th anniversary of his birth.
