Have you ever thought about how many people you've met in your life? And how some of those people have helped shape and influence who you are today? Who is the one that impacted you the most?
Over the past four years I have had the privelage of meeting exceptionally extraordinary people. People who have defied the stereotypes and statistics of their circumstances. However, there is a friend that has made more of an impact on my life than any other. This friend is my Father.
Growing up I remember always doing things with my Dad. From waking up at 6:30 to go golfing, to going to football games, pulling weeds, and mowing yards in the Texas heat. It's not that I got some profound revelation from these seemingly simple moments but every time I look back I hear my Dad telling me that "We will make memories"- and that we have.
Here I am now a twenty two year old full time missionary living somewhere I never thought I would and finding myself in situations that I know I would not normally be. From war zones, to mansions, to shacks, to universities I hear one phrase every time. "We will make memories"
Wherever you are in life I am confident that our Heavenly Father is telling you the same thing, "We will make memories." My Question to you is will you say yes to those little invitations from the Holy Spirit? At your work place, in line at the bank, in your relationships. The Father beckons and the reward is life and hope!
