My dad with Son One. I love this picture - my dad just looks so happy. Son One is his oldest grandson. The memories they have are just amazing.
This thought of heroes is a fun one to think of - it is even fun to think about heroes being famous people - athletes - movie stars - and a whole host of others. I am not so sure that I have ever thought who my heroes might be. But like Son One - I would probably go with people like my dad, my mom - several of Kerry's family too - mostly people that to me are "real".
And I guess if I had to really search my heart - I might say Jesus. And after a weekend experience I will always say that - Yes - Jesus is my hero.
We were at my favorite car dealership. I have bought 4 cars with this group of people. They are so easy to work with - and it is not the typical car buying experience. I still remember the first time I was there. We were on our way to a football game in Arlington - the second time with my sister in law during one of the PK Fires - the third time was this past fall - and this past weekend I went so that we could find a car for my mom.
I could stop right there and many of us would be bothered by the slang reference to Jesus when he in fact wasn't truly referring to Jesus. However it got much worse for me....
Let's don't bring him (Jesus) into it....He (Uncle Charles) has been more of a hero today than Jesus ever will be.
Every prayer since then - I have included her.
Absolutely breaks my heart.
As we drove that car for my mom today - on the radio was this song....
Your Love Never Fails
Thankful.... His love - never fails. And that same love that I know - that I have every day with me is the same love that will welcome her.
Always, May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all. 2 Corinthians 13:14.
