The crescent-moon stood witness, as a father spoke promise to his children in the faded backyard of yesteryear.
I’m certain he meant well at the time. I believe his promise was his wish. Sadly, it’s a promise that remains locked in the hazy summer air of that 1970-something night. Unfulfilled.
Fact is, this world with all its imperfect humans (us included) is sometimes a place of disappointment. Such is the nature of life this side of heaven. While often well-meaning, we can’t always count on one another to follow through, to wholeheartedly commit, to keep a word.
Oh, but there is One who never disappoints. One who is ever-true to generations of the faith.
Never leaving us empty or wanting, this tender-loving God we serve satisfies every good promise His grace affords us.
Sweet Father, may we seek out your footprints, following the example you set for us. Oh, how we thank you for your wild and aggressive faithfulness to every word spoken over us—from generations of old.
