This day is finally here! Oh, how I have longed to see my son stroll across the stage to receive his diploma. I love celebrating all of his accomplishments. I mean, it is a BIG deal! Right??? Brent looks at me and rolls his eyes…haha! He knows that I get excited about everything, but I can’t help it. I am a proud mom. I always knew that he was something special and for him to be graduating in the year 2020, I didn’t know back then that he would make history! In the middle of a pandemic, I wasn’t for sure if we would see this day happen. With strict instructions, our Governor gave us the “yes” we all wanted to hear. So, graduation was back on. From graduation invitations, ordering the cake, and getting the cap and gown, my eyes began to tear up as I thought about how he has made it this far in life and giving his all in everything he does. He works so hard on reaching his goals. He is a brave warrior. A bible verse comes to mind……..
So humble yourselves under the mighty power of God, and at the right time He will lift you up in honor. 1 Peter 5:6
If we are humble before God, then he will honor those who abide by Him and give Him glory. It is only in His timing that He will see fit to give recognition of what we long for, whether it be here on earth, or in the life to come. I take God’s word and lift my precious son up to the Lord and ask that He continue to watch and guide him in this life. I am thankful that He allowed me to see Brently’s graduation. Brent deserves the very best at everything that comes his way, so I take this Graduation Day and give God the glory for us to celebrate a life worth living!
Oh, Tonya – I’m so proud of your boy! He’s such a handsome young man, and I know that God has plans “to prosper him and give him a great future” (Jer. 29:11). He has – and will continue to – touch many hearts for Jesus. We give Him all the praise and glory.
