My dearest, dreaming son...
How my heart is bursting for you.
To watch you chase your dream is overwhelming.
I remember the first time I heard you sing.
It caught me off guard...this beauty.
I will admit to you now that I wept.
Overtaken by the sweet sound of your voice.
A gift that God has given you that was hidden
until you were ready to grasp hold of it.
You didn't stop there.
You knew there was more to this dream.
You wanted to learn to play the guitar.
You didn't take lessons, but instead you immersed
yourself in listening and playing by ear.
I have watched you chase this dream
of music that fills your head and heart.
And I am in awe of you.
This past weekend you took a big step in this journey.
You performed at The Coffee Shop.
You gave me a smile and began to strum your guitar.
Then you began to sing and I was undone.
You are walking out this God-sized dream.
Step by step.
Fearless and brave you are, my son.
Daddy and I are so very proud of you.
I love you.
My friend Holley Gerth invited me to join a group of dreamers that she affectionately calls her God Sized Dream Team. What a blessing to be part of this group.
We will be gathering each week on Tuesdays at Holley's to encourage each other to dream those God sized dreams.
Won't you join us?
