“Grandpa, do you know what a
horizon is?”Our grandson Joel
was only two years old when he
astonished his grandparents
with his curious question. Grandpa
tried his best to explain what he
thought the word meant.
Joel didn’t seem too impressed with
the answer at the time.
Now some sixteen years later, I believe Joel is defining horizon for himself as he
takes steps to realize his dream.
As a teen, Joel’s dream was to become a pilot. Sure enough at just the right time,
a door opened not far from home with the Civil Air Patrol. Following his years of
training with CAP, Joel workedhard to earn the money needed for further flight
Joel now has his pilot’s license. This coming Saturday, he
grad-uates from High School and begins Moody Aviation
School in Spokane, Washington this fall.
Joel, may you soar with God on wings as of an eagle, knowing
underneath are His everlasting arms. May you venture with
the Lord to those places already planned by Him, knowing He is with you wherever
Thank you Lord, for giving us a bigger picture of the horizon you placed in Joel’s
heart.We are grateful for the blessing he is to our family. May you use him to touch
and bless the lives of many.
Keep looking up Joel —The best is yet to come!
