Most folks believe we live a slow life.
But, even for us, life gets too fast.
However, these past five days, we have toned it down a notch,
to simply enjoy our time with young Jordan, who came back for an extended weekend visit.
These past five days,
young Jordan has hit cans with his BB gun on our range (he has a good eye),
driven the tractor (and even operated the front-end loader),
loved on the sled dogs (and they loved back x 10),
and picked tons of ripened blackberries (and filled his belly too!)
He also camped out (at the Bear's Den),
made wood crafts (a drum, complete with head),
hauled hay from a neighboring farm,
assisted in training a newbie draft horse (my next Blog to come...)
spotted deer (twice!),
and has eaten everything in sight, as well he should, as he is a growing boy.
That's the short list.
He will be 13 on the 13th.
A true milestone in the life of a young man.
A young man who is firming up who he is in life.
Who he will be.
But for now, he is just happy to enjoy each moment of each day.
And be a joy to us, during his visits.
Truth is, Jordan keeps us young...
as evidenced by our blackberry pickin's.
But in the end, it is as it should be.
Papa Bear's pickin's are the largest.
Then Mama Bear.
Then Baby Bear.
But it could be that Baby Bear ate most of his along the way.
Until tomorrow, God willing.
Think about that phrase.
God willing, as spoke by Paul in Romans 1:10.
It is by the grace of God that each of us will be here tomorrow.
With that knowledge, don't run about and try to accomplish much.
But instead, just sit at His feet.
For the desire of Jesus is for you to put Him first.
Have you put Him first today?
I'd love to hear from you.
