I couldn’t wait to get on the phone to call her aunt and uncle – and share the big news!! As always, I thought of my Tyler. He would be an awesome uncle – and I so wish I was sharing the fun news with him! Then I was reminded that he – and a great cloud of witnesses – are, indeed, cheering us on…..watching and interested in what is taking place here. How encouraging – and exciting!
You know, there are folks all around me that need “cheering on”…whether young or new Christians taking those early, and sometimes unsteady, steps of faith…..or perhaps older, yet weary Christians that need someone to simply come along side and give some support. There are even those who have not yet accepted Christ – but are so seeking and just need that little bit of encouragement.
Just as I am eager to see Roo walking…running….and taking on the world!, I hope Christ will allow me the privilege to “cheer” someone along their path today. Now, that would be exciting!
