I was blessed with boys, love em. One is 25 and one is 11. I am forever calling them by each other’s names. Swore I would never do it, but it happens – fact of life.
DS, the older, and I have had a bit of a falling out since Christmas time – at least that is when it came to a head. It has been difficult and my heart has been heavy but I have tried very hard to drop him and everything about him into God’s hands. I was surprised on Friday evening by a text message from him that he was on his way to the All Star Game in Dallas. He has been a huge basketball fan since he was in second grade and my dad took him to a Big 12 Conference game. Needless to say, I was thrilled for him, but full of questions because he isn’t a college educated big wig with a great job. He is, however, very friendly and has many people in his world who like to help him out periodically. A friend’s girlfriend lives in Dallas and apparently through her employer she was able to get him a ticket to the game tonight. On Saturday, he texted me a number of messages and I to him. The most we have “talked” since Christmas really. It was great, I felt like I was allowed in his world again for a time and I am extremely grateful. God is good. If anyone reads this particular entry, would you said a pray for my DS, the older, that he open himself up to a relationship with the Lord and that God place in his path, Godly people to show him the way?
