Chasing Contentment

Monday, February 20

Last night, Mike was ordained as a deacon in our church. It was a tender and delightful time for Mike, Griff, and me.

Our minister is retiring this spring, and Mike was one of the last two people he will ordain as our minister, and it is precious to me that this gentleman was the one to do this. (He was also the minister who baptized Griff, again, something special for us.)

Mike talked about his spiritual journey, and I was impressed again at his love for the Lord and with his willingness to be a servant to those around him. When the time came for the congregation to lay hands on Mike and the other gentleman who was ordained, Griff was able to participate. And that is the most precious memory of the event.

My little man/boy putting his hands on his daddy's head as Mike kneeled before him... Griff leaning over and whispering in his dad's ear... precious memories.
