Where will we be in ten years and in fifty?
We’ve talked, together,
about having kids and adopting
about planting a church
about, mostly, listening to God’s Spirit’s direction.
So I’ve been trying to write
a picture on paper,
A picture of us
both for now, and for then.
And honesty mandates that I make a confession:
that where we will be,
or what we’ll be doing,
I can’t say for certain;
that picture hasn’t yet been brought into focus.
But the confident picture I can write you is this,
the picture prescribed by God’s Holy Breathing:
a picture of Jesus.
The picture of us being ever more closely drawn
in His image;
in the decades to come,
that is my vision.
