Best Birthday Gift
On Saturday, little Chris’s mom Rahila and I celebrated our birthdays. Neither of us had cake or ice cream, but don’t feel sorry for us. We were overjoyed with the best gift of all—little Chris and his daddy Daniel had just returned home safely after a long and risky journey. Exhausted but smiling, this father and son are now back where they belong.
Little Chris is going to stay home from school a bit longer so his parents can keep an eye on him. After all, the scar and bandages and such might be too tempting for the other children to touch and admire. I think his playmates might also be envious of little Chris for sporting this tangible badge of God’s faithfulness.
Here’s to more birthdays and more ways to celebrate the gift of life.
