This morning we went north about 45 minutes to our daughter and sil's church, to see the graduating senior class take charge of the 3 worship services.
Deja Vu may not be the best choice of words, but you'll know what I mean...
Our daughter sat on the front row of their large auditorium, we were right behind her. She has lived, loved and worked with the kids who were graduating. 2 of our grandkids were a part of the service, the third one sat with us and watched, their time is still a few years away.
The deja vu part is... my daughter is now doing what I was doing just a few short years ago. She sat there, involved with all of it, just as I did in another church with her.
That's how fast life goes.
I wish I had a recording of the tesimonies of those seniors. Each one who shared, knew who they were, and knew who they served. As they head into their first college year, many of them already know they will one day be on the mission field or in ministry, the rest have their eyes focused on whatever God leads them to. They were expressive, bubbly, smart and determined.
The chapters of life... how rewarding it was to see these kids, entering this new chapter, sure footed and firm in their faith.
It was also a blessing to see our own kids and their kids, serving, growing and following Jesus. Our grandkids aren't seniors yet, but they were all involved today, and when their senior year comes, I pray that their feet will continue down the sure path they've already chosen.
A few more of those joys that have no price tags!
