1000 Words

As the saying goes, “A picture is worth a thousand words.” Last Sunday our faith community celebrated the high school graduates in our church. We put up a photo of my son, and his friend Jaden, when they were tiny little guys learning about Jesus in our Kids Community. Now they stood up on the platform as tall young men getting ready to step out into the next season of their lives.  I don’t know what it was, but looking at the photo of those two guys when they were so little spoke a thousand words to me. In the background I saw the room our little church plant once had to house the few kids who came with their families to our little start-up church. The mere background was a reminder of God’s faithfulness. The photo of that kid’s room also reminded me of the amazing women who championed and built our fantastic Kids ministry over the last 12 years: Sarah Webber, Monica Trevino, and Tarah Brown. Of course I looked at the photo, and then back at the young men standing in front of us, and I marveled at how kind, gracious, helpful, and committed to Jesus these two young men had become along with the commitment of their church to help them grow into Christlike maturity. God truly is good!
