Last night I took Cool Breeze to an ice cream social at the high school he will attend next fall. As hard as it was not to lead him around by the hand, I made a choice to simply stand back and watch him. Laughing with his friends, shaking hands with the football coach, chatting up the counselor.
I looked upon him with admiration. He faces the world with a confidence that few find. He likes who he is and he expects that others will too. I pray that God preserves and protects that in him.
He’s ready for this big change. He’s ready for the newness and the challenge of it all. I am too.
So here’s to the Class of Sweet ’16. May you follow God in every way seeking holiness and peace.
