What can I give back to God for the blessings he's poured out on me? I'll lift high the cup of salvation—a toast to God! I'll pray in the name of God; I'll complete what I promised God I'd do, and I'll do it together with his people. Psalm 116:12-14 (MSG)
I took my daughter shopping for a wedding dress yesterday. She looked so beautiful and grown up. It felt strange. But, it was a good kind of strange. Where has the time gone? How did I wake up and find myself so far down the road along life's journey? My baby is getting married. She's a loveable, valuable, capable young woman.
I look back at where I've been. I look around me. This stretch of life's road looks different than I had expected. Don't get me wrong. It's a good place. I've been so blessed. God has been so good through all of the troubles, sorrow, and anguish along the way. "What can I give back to God for the blessings he's poured out on me?"
"I'll complete what I promised God I'll do…"
That includes walking my daughter down the aisle.
