63 years ago today my parents married. My mother reminded me last week that she’s known dad since she was three!
Dad needed surgery last week on his heart, so they’ll celebrate today in a hospital.
I had the chance to pray with my dad before his surgery and thanked God for my Psalm 78 father:
He established a testimony in Jacob
and appointed a law in Israel,
which he commanded our fathers
to teach to their children,
that the next generation might know them,
the children yet unborn,
and arise and tell them to their children,
so that they should set their hope in God
and not forget the works of God,
but keep his commandments;
(Psalm 78:5-7 ESV)
I’m grateful to God for the common grace of medical care, but even more grateful for the uncommon grace of being into a home that trusted and trusts God in all circumstances.
