as i sat by the ocean, you said, "let go."
and Dad, although it's taken me a while to get here,
i think i'm there.
ready to walk away and not be bitter, not be resentful.
i understand why you blessed me with him,
why we're such good friends and the amazing
that i've received as i've seen more of his soul.
more of mine.
the more i look into his face
into his character,
i see You.
i see the ways he strives to please you,
he's pledged his life to you,
that's a beautiful thing.
his heart is beautiful,
the way he cares for me
the way he loves his family
although it's difficult,
there's been disappointment
i see the way he's following You,
following You to the cross day after day
praising You along the way
praying that you'll make his heart
more and more like yours.
