“Grandpa, do you know what a
horizon is?”Our grandson was
only two years old when he
astonished us with his question.
Grandpa tried his best to explain
what he thought the word meant,
but Joel didn’t seem too impressed
Now some sixteen years later, I believe our grandson 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 years of
training with CAP, Joel worked hard to earn the money needed for further flight
Joel now has his pilot’s license. This coming Saturday, he
graduates 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 you go.
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.
